Tip of the Day – The golden glow
In the second editing tutorial in RealShoots Episode 2, I take you through a complete edit – from white balance, contrast, tone corrections and local adjustments to really bring out that golden hour glow in Lightroom, then on to removing stubborn colour casts in Photoshop.⠀
People often ask me how to get more colour, saturation and vibrance in their images, assuming that it’s all in the editing. While editing is important, these details do need to be present in the RAW file, and that can only come from the way you light and shoot the image – the shooting video in the tutorial takes you through that side of things too!⠀
