Parts 13+14 - The Zone Approach

August & September 2005 Magazines


Some photographs need significant adjustments to improve them. Every photographer has experienced the sun disappearing behind a cloud just before an important train arrives and getting a disappointing result. The ‘Zone Approach’ divides the picture up into zones and applies individual adjustments to each zone. It is particularly effective for pictures taken in cloudy conditions and the resulting image can be surprisingly good. The same principles can be applied beneficially to most photographs, even those taken when the sun was shining.

The picture of 87002 in Part One shows the ‘Before’ and ‘After’ stages.

Below is the same image split up into its zones. How to do this and the treatments to be applied are described in the printed magazine.
