As we all know, every single photo we take is unique. It doesn’t matter whether we shoot the same image several times, or under the same lighting conditions, or using the same camera settings. As we have all noticed from personal experience, some images have grain in darker areas while others lack contrast in certain areas, and others suffer from major backlighting issues. Most post-production software allows you to deal with these problems by offering a wide range of overwhelming correction, leaving you to do all the heavy lifting. Hector Martinez demonstrates how to bring out the best of your image from the start, giving you a head start for whichever post-production program with which you may be working. Learn about the only raw conversion software that is completely based on camera-lens hardware characterization. DxO Optics Pro 9 is software that fixes the flaws in your image by filling in the information that is missing between your camera and your lens.  Optics Pro 9 will take care of any issues your image may have, such as an unsharp image, color rendering, perspective control, keystone issues, and digital noise. As a pre-post production software, it is ideal for everyone, from the amateur to the professional photographer. No matter what your interest in photography is, be it travel, location, studio, event, or portrait photography, spend less time behind the computer and more time behind your camera as Optics Pro 9 does all the fixing for you. About Hector Martinez:  I decided to become a street and field photographer in the early 1990s. The images that most greatly influenced my photography and molded my career were very straightforward, direct, “in your face” documentary images from around the world, especially from Third World countries. These images told me a story that was bold and powerful. They told the truth, ugly or beautiful. I was intensely affected by these images and that feeling motivated me to become a photographer. When I look through my viewfinder, I experience the sense of danger and adventure of feeling other people’s authentic emotions. I feel that I am in the middle of the situation at that moment and, through my photography, I can freeze that moment in time for the world to see.
