p.1 #1 · NCAA Football- Cal vs OSU


This time around, I worked on cropping. C and C welcomed! Thanks for all those who helped me earlier.
I realized that I do have some color consistency problems. What is the best way to normalize the colors after shadow recovery and exposure adjustments?

Update: Thanks to Scott's comments, I updated the set. Before I was using global shadow recovery (to recover faces), but the colors just don't look quite right. Now I used local brushes on the faces instead- the colors look much better in my opinion.

Sweet shots. I like the first three and #7 which is the second #4. Check your numbering….

Turned out it was #8 and not #7 after the re-configuration.

Nice images. I really like the first two. Nice grab by the receiver and you on the first one.

Your numbering is all jacked up, so it's tough to comment on specific images. The first three are really nice action and crops, but after that it gets a little disjointed, IMO. A couple of them have too much stuff in the foreground for my tastes. The action is good throughout.

I'm curious...did you use the s/h tool on the first three? I would bet money you did as they have that typical s/h washed out look. The contrast is shot. I personally avoid that tool like the plague. I crop, make a slight levels adjustment, dodge/burn slightly and call it good. Generally, that should be plenty for most images, IMO.

Keep up the nice work!!

Thanks for the nice comments.

Scott, your feedback really worked! I re-worked with some of the images. I am going to avoid s/h from now on. Global filters such as s/h really mess up the colors and contrast. Now I use local brushes (on faces, etc.). The colors and images look much better now. Thanks again- I need to stop being lazy.

I updated the set- colors look much better now.

Looks good, have any of Richard Rodgers, #11 (Cal)? I shot him in HS here, he's the son of Richard Rodgers, of "The Play" fame (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Play).

He switched to receiver this year...

Oh yes. Not this game though- but the previous game vs Portland State.

He made a crazy 70+ I believe yard touchdown.

Hi Doc, Big fan of your work- your images are inspirations for me. Let me know if you ever shoot a Cal game, it will be awesome if we do meet.
