Making dull photo to Dramatic one!!

Published by makka under on 3:53 PM



Hi CTCians.

We are starting a tips/tricks tutorials from this week,

Here Goes My first tutorial:Making dull photo to Dramatic one.( a must need for trek photos,group photos)

I Believe you all ware of ACR(adobe camera RAW)

The Original photo:


Output Image:


Steps:

1.Load the JPEG/RAW photo into ACR.
2.Increase exposure a little bit (if needed increase the recovery also)
3.Add fill light to increase overall light in photo
4.Here come the fun: Add/Increase Blacks to make the shot as u like.(Important step)
5.Add a bit clarity
6.Add vibrancy upto MAx 40%
7.Don't play with saturation ,It will spoil the naturallity of the photo.
8.Review the final o/p in preview .and open it in PS. Do a smart crop ,add a frame for adding depth to the photo

You are done.Compare the o/p with original ..U will appreciate yourself..I am not kidding ;-))

Note:Thanks karthick makka for the original photo.form Bodi0munnar trek.


As this our first post in this series ,I appreciate  give your comments and feedback

May suggest next technique /tutorial also
