Hello, I am Bill. New here as well as new to Darktable, Linux, and Photography. As I learn how to properly use my camera I also wanted to find some edit software to use and I stumbled on Darktable. Using Bruce Williams tutorials to get to some grips I actually learned a lot about Darktable and Histograms which should help me when I start shooting.
For some practice I found a Raw file on the internet as I don’t have any of my own yet. This was a old community edit challenge photo that was posted on froknowsphoto’s page. it can be found here: source
I wanted to go for a filmy like look I removed the base curve from the original image and tweaked the exposure and white balance. Then I used the filmic module for all the adjustments and added a little grain to top it off. Keep in mind my monitor is not hardware calibrated waiting for my device to come in to do so. So hopefully my edit does not look to messed up.
