Tips for postprocess
1. Black and white can help
If you have bad white balance and it’s not possible to fix it during postprocess, you don’t like final tint or in picture is too much noise, try convert photo into black and white. Trouble with light color wil be solved and noise looks much better on black and white photos then in color ones. It evokes nice nostalgic mood that was on old monochromatic photos.
2. Reduction resolution will remove noise and sharpen photo
In case you will not need full size of picture. And that‘s almost always, because nowadays top model smartphones capture into 8-20 Mpix and even from 5 Mpix you can print A4 photo. That means you have enoung room for crop but mainly for reduction. Reduction resolution has two big advanteges. First reduction reduce noise in picture. Second photo is sharpen, which is always plus in perspective of phone lens quality. I personally reduce photos from 20 Mpix to haff size. For using on web much more.
3. Light challenging scenes combine from more shoots
In light challenging scenes is sometimes sensor dynamic range too small. Don’t worry to shoot more photos from tripod in this situation. By help of exposure compensation shoot for drawing in lights and drawing in shadows. Final results will be combined through layers in Photoshop. Your results will have not too much overburned parts and contained details in darker part of photo as well.
Left top part with lantern is combined with rest of photo, that was shoot to keep detail on paving and sign. This was because of overburns on lantern during exposure on 1 second
