I spent the morning at the Houston Zoo with my favorite photography mentor and a small group of amateur photographers learning and practicing our new skills. Every time I do something like this I learn a new tip or trick. Today it was to turn off Active D-lighting, known as Auto Lighting Optimizer (ALO) on Canon.
D-lighting attempts to balance the light in both the shadows and light areas of a photograph. By turning it off, you can have a more dramatic difference and more depth in your photos. It will also help your subject “pop”.
As I have said before, I LOVE photography. I love being able to use my camera to capture a moment in time. Here are a few photos from today. I will let them do the talking for me. (the first 3 have Active D-Lighting on, for the rest it has been turned off)
I have a number of paperbacks, most of which are signed, to giveaway. Over the between now (11 Mar 2017) and 31 Mar 2017, every comment on the blog (this post and all other new posts), will be entered to win 1 of these paperbacks. There are also some misc swag items, so there will be a few packs of these to give away as well.
Thank you so much for your support over the last 4 years. Prism will be closing its doors on 1 April 2017. All content will remain available, but no new content will appear after 31 Mar 2017. As such all request forms have been turned off. Again Thank you,
