linear response a success story
« on: July 26, 2015, 10:23:00 PM »

there have been some discussions on linear response curve and auto or standard etc.  i usually run into the clouds near the sun example and i think that may be from the image professor blog.  i have gotten some success out of linear response with a photo of a downtown restaurant nestled in between two multi-story buildings.  the face of the restaurant is very white efis material that has some cracks and stains. my exposure was just low enough to give it a value range in the high 240's.  using the linear response and hand tweaking the curves, i was able to get some details like the water stains and cracks to show up better than using the auto or standard mode. especially when adding clarity.  the curve is really crazy looking, and after an hour or two of playing with it and variations, it doesn't seem to adversely affect the rest of the image. so - good thing!

Film Standard curves i also found a little agressive. So i put a Linear curve, Exposure slider +1EV and saved as defaults for my camera (A7r). In most cases it is the thing. In rare occasion i touch a curves panel now.

Yes, same here. Not only does the film curve response suggest that I'm overexposing (which RawDigger confirms that I'm not), but with a linear curve as a start I get much control over my highlight rolloff. Also saved as a camera default style, I never have to change that behavior unless I specifically want to.

Cheers,
Bart.

i didnt think of starting off with the exposure slider first, then tweaking the curves.  good idea!
