Dodging and burning are steps to take care of mistakes God made in establishing tonal relationships. – Ansel Adams
From negative to print or from sensor to TIFF is a journey that can make or break pictures. Dark-room techniques and Post-processing techniques were always used by great photographers to bring that life, that difference into their pictures that made their good pictures look great. As mentioned by Ansel Adams we do not live in an ideal world where everything is “picture perfect”. Nor are we “Igors” pulling the switch to help cameras to take pictures. Photographers are artistic souls who have an idea about the end-result as they click an image.
Shri. Vijay Kumar Pattadakkall, is gifted with an eye for details. He notices everything on the picture, be that crumpled piece of paper on the ground or that small figure of a person out of place in the frame. He also knows how to take care of such anomalies in the picture and bring back that fine balance. It is no wonder that many leading photographers, like Shri. TNA Perumal and Shri. M N Jayakumar, had turned to Vijay to process their pictures for printing. Mr. Vijay had, as a reciprocation of respect, printed all the 50+ photographs of Shri. TNA Perumal that were displayed at Chitrakala Parishath during the YPS Tribute to TNA Perumal Contest and Exhibition held between April 28 and 30.
Shri. Vijay is also a keen nature photographer. On July 15th he will share some of pictures and also demonstrate post-processing techniques using Adobe Photoshop.
Here are some of his images.
