TAKE Your PHOTOS from ZERO to HERO! Edit like a Pro

Taking better photos is a huge important part of photography but editing is another one not enough people grasp. I'm not talking about using filters for Instagram - I'm talking about editing images fully on Lightroom.



For the best non-destructive edits here is my step by step guide to editing photos:

→ Start by fixing your white balance correctly

→ Set the exposure to a correct level if you happened to shoot under or overexposed.

→ Apply your Lightroom preset or

→ Adjust the Tone Curve adjustments to your liking - this is where you should do most of your work

→ Adjust the highlight/shadow/white/dark in the first tool panel

→ Move to the calibration panel at the bottom and tweak the colors to your liking. Note that this will adjust how the primary colors are being interpreted in the whole image. You are adjusting how RGB is being displayed - so it will change the magenta, cyan etc... all the colors created from RGB.

→ In your HSL panel adjust the colors to get the vibe and style you are going for. Note that here when you adjust a color it only adjusts that specific color and nothing else. Set the hue, saturation and luminance (how bright/dark) of your colors.

→ Go for local adjustments to either remove elements distracting / crop / dodge-burn / affect individual areas.

And that's it! Once done, sit back relax go for a coffee and 10mn later look at your image to see how you feel about it. It usually takes a few iterations to get it right. Note that creating your own style takes a LOT of practice. So keep editing, use presets and create your own!
