Photogrpahy Techniques

Sorry for being a thread whore, but I thought this thread would be good to talk about steps and softwares that people have used for implementing various filters on the images to make them say black and white, retro, sharp etc etc.

Thats weird, I was just thinking of starting a Photoshop thread where maybe people could list their favorite plug-ins etc..

Re: Photogrpahy Techniques

To answer your question I usually just use Lightroom to make my photos retro or B&W, also to adjust exposure,white balance and cropping while importing them from my RAW files.

As far as photoshop plug-ins I use:
Digital Film Tools: To adjust color,saturation,and contrast
Picture Code-Noise Ninja: To remove unwanted grain and noise
Kodak-Digital SHO Professional: To add fill light on dark photos

I have a lot of others, but these are the ones I use the most. I am a noob myself, so take this advice for what its worth.

Re: Photogrpahy Techniques

i use lightroom as well for pretty much everything. i will open photoshop via lightroom to only edit blemishes or dodge / burn part of an image as needed and that is it. once done, i export all images to hi-rez jpg and batch rename them via adobe bridge.
