Picture Style Tweaked for Outdoors
Aug 30, 2010

This is a picture style I've tweaked for shooting outdoors with my 450D. I've pushed the midtones up about 2/3 EV so that the foreground is brighter when exposing for the sky in Wide angle outdoor shots. This is really for anyone reluctant to do post processing. I must caution that this picture style only works correctly when uploaded into the camera and selected for shooting. You can apply the picture style in post in DPP but it will be overly saturated compared to in-camera.

I recommend anyone using this tweaked picture style to shoot in RAW so that you can always fallback to any of the factory picture styles in case something isn't quite right. I've tested it as best as I can but there may be things I missed. Saturation +2 gives more realistic colours. Saturation +3 gives more vivid colours. You can download the picture style from http://www.mediafire.com/file/vo8iq12s9posw91/Faithful%20Tweak%20Outdoor%20Camera%201.pf2
Any feedback is welcome.

Just showing what I've done to the tone curve of the Faithful picture style. You're most welcome to further tweak the picture style and post up any picture styles you've created.
