April 2021 // The Travel Edition

Opening the image into DPP4, the RAW was not nearly as warm and muddy, but still quite darker than back of camera. (fig. 2) Well, it dawned on me to check the display brightness settings and of course they were jacked up to full brightness. The silver lining here is it’s better to underexpose to save highlights vs. overexposing. After navigating DPP4 for a bit I was able to get the Tool palette to see the Picture Style. At capture I used Neutral to reduce the effects in preview, but you can honestly choose any of these. (fig. 3) I know it’s very popular to use Standard or Fine Detail, but in my opinion using Neutral lets you add more tonality later versus fighting too much contrast/saturation later.
