Post-processing

Generally I strive to do as little post-processing as posible. But from my point of view most modern camera equipment can only reproduce a near-realistic image of the “real life” experience.  So in terms of white balance, contrast and coloration I regularly make small adjustments to give the viewer the best posible glimpse into world seen through my eyes and lens.

The collages and obvious manipulated images are of course an exception, but I rarely makes these kind of images.

The software I’ve used:

Adobe Photoshop CS5

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5

ZereneStacker (great program for stacking multiple images in macro photography)
