Case Study: How to Revive Bad Weather Photographs
http://www.phototraces.com/deconstructing-photo/case-study-how-to-revive-bad-weather-photographs/

Today I want to share with you the typical scenario from the life of traveling photographer.

I love California in general and Point Lobos State Reserve is one of my favorite locations on the West Cost.

Every time I plan my California trip I dedicate at least a day to visit and photograph Point Lobos.

The reserve opens at 9am in the morning so sunrise colors are out of the question, and you always hope for good light at sunset.

The day visited Point Lobos in January of 2014 I was out of luck. It was an overcast and gloomy day with no sun, shadows or contrast.

It was the winter of the worst drought in California history and it made the colors distinct across the entire California. In Point Lobos forest area, the colors became completely unrealistic with the predominantly red and orange colors covering the trees.

After waiting for a couple of hours for the weather to improve, I realized that the only option I had was to take a bunch of photographs hoping to bring them back to life later during the editing.

If you follow my blog you probably noticed that I do most of my photo editing in Lightroom and only occasionally use Photoshop. In today’s case, the process of editing Point Lobos photo is completely reversed. I only used Lightroom briefly and the heavy lifting was done in Photoshop.
