Lately I have been shooting using manual mode. It started off as an exercise to shoot manual mode for one week. I read in the forum that once you get the hang of it you will not change the dial to any other mode. It’s true. Why not try it for a week? You will learned a lot from it. I promise.
So today, I want to share with you how I processed this photo. This is a SOOC = Straight Out of the Camera image. Meaning = No editing is done.
D700 50mm F2.2 ISO 1000 1/320s
I sharpened the eye area a bit and soften the skin. I think the rest are OK.
Black and white version.
Feeling a little creative, I played around with texture. I prefer the black and white version, which do you prefer?
