I’m processing a roll of Portra 400 where I’d like to keep good shadow details but recover some of the amazing sunset. Straight out of conversion, the photo looks like this
So I was like - uhm, those details must sure be blown out. To see what’s hiding there, I tried moving brightness to min
There’s a lot of details, but now shadow details are gone. It did recover the nice blue-ish tint of the sky
I tried Linear + Gamma as well
What’s going on here? Looks like I have all the details, ready to recover, but I seem to be unable to do it.
I’m not trying to make my photo look HDR-ish of course.
