Welcome to my tutorial!
I give you a little amount of editing tips for better photos. So, the first step is, you need Photoshop or Lightroom exactly.
I write the tips:
You need to use contrast. Try these values: 5, 10, 20, 40. I always use 30-40.
Okay, so, highlights are always the first step after contrast. Try these values: from -20 to -90.
- White balance and Temperature.
Try the white balance at 5200-5300K, your camera use this value.
- Camera Neutral profile.
Do NOT use Adobe Color profile, always use Camera Neutral. Your camera use that too!
So, it is a funny, but valuable for editing.
Your camera always use sRGB, so set sRGB to color profile. You can set it with 2 steps. I highly recommend you the Photoshop Camera RAW. Click at the bottom blue underlined text, and set it from Adobe RGB to sRGB.
Masking: press alt, and drag. When the background is black when pressing alt, you're done with sharpening.
- Noise reduction.
- Lens correction.
Chromatic aberration: thick.
Lens profile corrections: thick.
Make sure, you filled all of the lens corrections.
And you are done!
