The Quick and Easy Guide to Color Correction Part 2

In part one of this guide I covered the basics for color balancing. In this guide, I’ll show you more advanced techniques on how to take your color corrected photo and turn it into a gorgeous, glossy photo you might find on the cover of a magazine. This process relies a lot more on artistic interpretation than straightfoward color correction, so an eye for color certainly helps.

While my objective with this post is to achieve a colorful glossy underwater photo, you can use the same techniques to achieve any kind of style or mood you are looking for whether it’s a Film Noir look or a cold wintery day feel to your photo.

You download the photo and pull it up. Ugh! It’s so dull! It’s nothing like the beautiful flower you took a picture of! What happened? How can you fix it?
