Bryan Posted December 12, 2016 Share Posted December 12, 2016 I normally try to achieve a balanced histogram using levels layers in PS. OK some subjects need to have a skewed shape, but I try to avoid blown highlights and detail free shadows. This is difficult with a Sony sensor, as bright reds and blues often appear over saturated. However I've just conducted some industrial espionage, taking a look at a successful contributor's images in PS. They are characteristically both bright and saturated, and typically have blown highlights and totally black shadows. I.e. there is a vertical line at each end of the levels histogram in PS. Time for a rethink? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
