Chromatic aberration and color fringing can often be overlooked, or simply dismissed as an unavoidable issue with lenses used. However, if you're one who would like an effective way of removing that from your shots in post production, this tutorial is meant just for you.
There is so much out there, in both written form and found in video tutorials, concerning the use of frequency separation for the use of portrait work and skin retouching that it can be easily thought to be a technique solely for portrait retouchers. But this excellent instruction from Michael Breitung takes the time to illustrate for us exactly how effective frequency separation can be for other uses. I'm not sure I would have thought to use frequency separation for color work quite like what Breitung does in this video, but as I watched the tutorial it made total sense to me.
His technique is so brilliantly simple that I couldn't believe that I had not thought to do something like it before. Maybe actually like having the color fringing in your work, or maybe you see this as an unnecessary alteration, but I am really impressed with the results from putting this to use. When it comes to preparing print ready artwork, I will definitely be employing these techniques much, much more often. Perhaps you have different techniques for fixing chromatic aberration, if so, let us know what you prefer to do!
