Serge Ramelli's photos and techniques...
Feb 16, 2014

So just curious what people think of Serge Ramelli's photos and lightroom techniques.

I love his tutorials on Lightroom and have learned a lot, but I can't help but think his stuff is a bit overcooked and too HDR.

I suppose it's his style and his photos are quite dramatic, but I'm just not sure.

Does one really need to bring down highlights all the way and bump shadows up all the way on every photo? I realize it's probably an interesting starting point and I do seem to like the Alt trick with whites and blacks, but just not sure about the shadows and highlights.

I'm thinking my photos are now way overcooked due to learning these techniques and I probably need to dial it back.
