So, who is luckier?, the kid who gets to play hockey or the parents who get to watch?
It’s a toss up I would say.
This photo I took at a game this morning. I’ll show you the original in a moment. When I take hockey photos, I always start with the white balance on Auto and take a photo of the rink. Then I use that photo to set the Custom white balance in the camera. That works in helping set the white balance correctly. Given the conditions of the rink, I always have a high ISO and fast shutter speed.
When I get the photos on my computer, I open up Photoshop. I shoot in RAW, so first I open the photo in Camera Raw and do a white balance adjustment. Then I open the photo into Photoshop and do any cropping that I want. Sometimes I also do a levels adjustment, although on this photo I did not. Then I sharpen the photo. From there I convert my RAW photo to a JPEG. I make it into a JPEG because that makes it easier to share with other parents on the team.
Here is the original:
So, what do you think? who is luckier? What do you think of my adjustments and workflow?
