Horses and techniques
By way of introduction, I'm not keen on horses. They are lovely, beautiful, great animals, but I've had no chance in my life yet to keep myself close to them. In spite of this, you can see many photos about horses in my portfolio. No, I'm not a liar. :) Horses are easy to shoot (with camera, of course :)), they're calm and funny in same way, so really good models for an amateur, too.
Second stage, I'm not a Photoshop guru. I don't like hard modification in an image - but now I realized that good, small things can help you. I never use layers (don't laugh loud! :)) – once I tried it and I did not like. I’d like to share you some simple tools to get better photos without that “duplicate layers” function.
In second photo, sun was not there originally. The middle of shot was darker and clouds burnt out there because of noon lights. A little Lens flare effect (on 35 mm) could help me to remove those problems from my photo. It’s not a big deal, but counts a lot.
Have you got some more tips for a layer-hater?
