A weeping angel in Highgate cemetary, London. It was a sunny day and the angel was cast into shadow, but the overgrown ivy is all highlighted.
very grainy scan, was a iso 400 necessary?
Under exposed, very grainy, and out of focus. Is this just a small part of a larger image?
I know! I am looking at the photo itself and it is sharper and not grainy so it has scanned that way. I don't know how to improve it in PS so any suggestions would be welcome. I did crop it slightly down the side to centre the angel more. Would a slower shutter speed have given the face more light?
Any advice would be good... thanks!
Did you use flash, directional flash would light the area where needed. You can work wonders in P.S. I think your prob is in the scanning. Was the original print Glossy or Mat? If it was Mat scanning is made extremely hard as it picks up all the bobbles on the paper. I always use Glossy print for scanning. Try using despeckle and remove dust and scratches... To Lighten, the 'Dodge tool is great.
I hope this helps a little. If you need more help you can call me at 1.50 per minute.
Thanks Shane. It was a glossy photo I scanned in. I didn't use a flash mainly because I only have a flash gun and didn't want to carry it around London with me all day! I am completely new to PS and so don't know how to do anything but cropping and borders Will certainly look at the dodge tool though. Will certainly NOT be calling your extortionate phone line!!
