I mean, how DO you process your photos? #1

If I could get a $ for every time someone asked me this question, I’d be super rich with a Nikon D3X in my hands. But, unfortunately I don’t get a $ everytime someone asks me that question. Anywho, lately I’ve been processing in GIMP, mostly just focusing on light and contrast. This isn’t some big revelation tutorial but I think it works okay for adding a bit of contrast. It is literally a basic tutorial. You have to work with your photo. This tutorial might not be good if exposition is way too dark. Then you have to work on lighting up the dark parts.

    I do this a lot when I use my laptop that doesn’t have photoshop. It’s great for quick edits.

    LOL!! It is because the colours on your photos are amazing!! :D
    I really love how a simple curve can make extraordinaries changes/effects :)
    I tried to use Gimp before and it is a REALLY nice photo editor :) but I think I’m too attached to lightroom these days :P
