Aside from the tutorial, Jay also gladly shared a few tips and tricks in post-processing your photos.
- Having a good display is as important as having a good camera. Be sure to edit on a well-calibrated display.
- Gone are the days of muted colored pictures. Vivid colors are the trend, but please don’t overdo the edit. Know the difference between Saturation and Vibrance, explore the Hue and Temperature sliders and yes, the HSL (Hue, Saturation and Luminance) too.
- Most editing programs have these Gradient and Radial tools. Master them.
- Ocular exercise. Social media is the new platform for talented photographers to promote their work. Follow them and see their edits and styles. You can learn a lot by just looking at their pictures.
