Photo editing can be your best friend or worst enemy

Too much photo editing can lose its sense of realism, and too little can leave a photo looking like an amateurish snapshot.

This 4-step system (recommended workflow) is as simple as:

  • Step 1: Composition - create a stronger composition and direct attention between elements and  through the photo
  • Step 2: Tones - creatively set the mood through exposure (bright and dark areas), contrast and sharpening
  • Step 3: Colour - correct, enhance, change or even selectively introduce new colours to your photo
  • Step 4: Local adjustments - this is where the magic happens! Make area-specific enhancements
Intuitively create your next favourite photo using this systematic process
