Tips for A Deeper, Richer Photo with Jaco Beach Bachelor Parties

June 7, 2017

As with all photos, great light is key when it comes to your end result. For these particular kinds of edits, I encourage shooting in the early morning or during golden hour for deeper tones. Experiment with different times of day and remember shade is always on your side too!

1. Adjust little by little

I’ll never forget in Photoshop class before editing apps existed, I was instructed to edit in “onsies and twosies”, meaning watch closely and adjust little by little to start. This goes for any change you make: filters, contrast, saturation, curves, etc. For example, with every image I edit, I rarely go 100% intensity on any given filter. I think this gives off more of a custom look and will allow for more control as you make changes to the photo. For this example, I applied the Magic Hour filter at 10%, and then continued to add contrast, saturation, yellow, and purple tint at 10% over and over. Always feel free to keep reapplying any given tool if you feel like you want more of something. I finished this edit off with the coral color fog at the top of the image.

2. Contrast is key

Shifting contrast slightly at the beginning of any photo is a great adjustment to start with (after your filter) because it’s the main tool for achieving this particular look. Essentially, you’re upping the highlights and darkening the shadows. From there, you can see what the photo needs. Depending on the edit, I’ll go in with contrast as a final step as well just to deepen everything a bit more. The example above only has one filter applied (Candy Girl at 70%), and the contrast was bumped up by 30%.

3. Shifting tones with highlight, midtone, and shadow colors

I am truly obsessed with these tools! One reason being, it’s so customizable to virtually any photo. When it comes to reds, greens, and blues, you get to choose which color you want a little bit less or more of. Here’s an example of shifting midtone and shadow colors with blues and greens. This image has no filter, a tiny bit of contrast, and I bumped up the green midtone and shadow by about 50%. The other image has the same steps applied but using blues instead. This can dramatically change the look of the photo with just a couple quick steps.
