Retouching Nature Art Photography Images

When working with nature art photography, some aspects of the shoot cannot be controlled. Retouching can help enhance the photograph’s overall look. The following are a number of aspects that can be retouched when it comes to nature art photographs.

1. Color Correction
In older photographs, the tone of the photo can be different. By knowing the colors of the original elements, the individual performing the retouches can alter the colors, making them more accurate.

2. Dust, Fingerprints or Scratches
These elements can be caused by a dirty or scratched lens and can affect the quality of the image. Removing these minor imperfections can improve the look of the photograph.

3. Sharpening or Blurring Elements
Sharpening or blurring specific areas of the image can help direct the attention of the viewer towards the subject. Care must be taken that it is not done too much or it can produce sharp lines or noise.

4. Changing the Shadows and Highlights
Depending on a number of factors, the amount of light the photographer works with outdoors can change quickly and is difficult to control. Adding highlights or shadows to certain elements can help create volume. It can also help emphasize or remove emphasis on aspects of the photograph.

5. Adding or Removing Elements
Adding or removing parts can alter the accuracy of the image. Photo editors must take care that the revision does not violate any ethical rules.
