Shot Notes

This shot was taken on the west coast of Jamaica. The image did not need much doing to it due to the type of camera it was taken on. I shot it with a compact camera EX-Z3 bought in 2004. It is very similar to the type of camera you would find in a mobile phone today. These types of cameras produce images which are ready to use. Contrast, Sharpening and Colour Saturation are all added to the image before the camera saves the jpeg. A DSLR has different aims for an image it produces. It is designed to reduce noise and preserve detail in highlights and shadows. The resulting image will look flatter but it is far more of a workable when it gets into Photoshop. This image therefore only needed a subtle tone curve to bring out the colours. The relationship between tone curve and colour saturation will have to wait for another post.
