Dive Into The Art Of Photo Editing

When we think of photography, we often only picture the creator going out and photographing something. But editing is just as important and not to be overlooked. With today’s Sony cameras, editing is more powerful than ever. The massive file sizes and great dynamic range makes for exciting post-processing. There are quite a few trends with editing – some photographers go for the authentic look, trying to represent what they saw as accurately as possible. Others go for a more stylized look, creating aesthetically branded color palettes. The possibilities are endless. To further explore the world of photo editing, we’ve gathered a set of YouTube videos from our community of Sony shooters. Take a look, subscribe to their channels, and give some of these editing techniques a try.
