Have you ever taken an image that looked great on the back of the camera, but upon closer inspection on a larger screen, was found to be slightly out of focus? This is a very frustrating position to be in as a photographer. This tutorial provides options to help reduce blurriness and enhance texture and detail in your images.
Whether you are using Lightroom or Capture One, this tutorial by the talented Kayleigh June will show you some of the tools in each of the software and provide a comparison so you can decide which method or which program you prefer.
June begins by stating that the results are not going to be perfect when you have not managed to nail the focus in camera, but editing programs have improved dramatically, leading to much better results which get you closer to where you need to be.
Beginning with Lightroom, June zooms in on the eyes of the subject in an image which are just not sharp enough and then takes us through some options other than the sharpen slider. Moving over to Capture One, a similar journey is taken with equivalent tools, before the tutorial ends with a comparison of edits. You can make up your own mind as to which software you think has come out on top with sharpening images that are slightly out of focus.
