Once the digital image has been shot and transfered to a computer, it’s ready to be rendered. The process of rendering an image into its final form is carried out in one of the many image editing and manipulation tools such as Apeature, Lightrom or Photoshop. A wide variety of adjustments can be made to the image including exposure, contrast and sharpness. It’s also possible to combine multiple images into a panorama, or collage, create images with extended toanl range using HDR techniques or turn the photo into a digital painting. The ability to creatively express an idea or vision using the powerful imaging tools of the day is just remarkable.

Having an understanding of the digital digital darkroom can provide guidence during the composition and shooting of an image. Making the appropriate composition and camera adjustments can make it easier to render your vision on the computer. For example you can select the type of image you capture (RAW/JPEG) which impacts the range of adjustment options, choose a background that makes it easier to extract a portion of an image for creative editing or take multiple shots that will become a collage.

All of these creative opportunities during rendering become part of the process of the digiphoto experience. And once again, be understanding the relationship between the key elements of the digiphoto process including composing, shooting and rendering, we have a better chance of ending up with an image that represents our vision of the person, place of thing we photographed.
