Behind the Shot: Nautilus

I did more than blinking the images in my browser, I copied both into PS and compared them there. I then tried “boosting the saturation a bit” to try and get the same result. I’m positive there was more to it (and I’m not talking about the obvious brightness equalization he didn’t mention in the tutorial, that I can accept).

I’m glad these processing techniques are trivial for you (really). Unfortunately, not all of us, me included, are as good as the professionals. If we knew how everything is done, we wouldn’t be here reading these tutorials. Which is why I expect them to include all these details. Otherwise they’re just lousy promotions for a photographer who’s not willing to truly share his experience beyond the obvious (and in this case, ill-presented) tips.
