Soft vs. Gritty Fitness Images

fitness-photographer-editing

This is one of those decisions that you are going to need to make on every single photograph, so once again, this falls into one of our fundamentals of raw processing. What makes an image more soft versus gritty? It all depends of the energy of the photograph and we control this with overall contrast and specifically we are controlling it with midtone contrast, created by the Clarity Slider. Detail does play a part in this because of how much we are sharpening but we will cover that later on.
