Here’s a photo from last summer of my neighbour (left).Watched a few tutorials on the internet machine today about CC in LAB color mode and thought I’d give it a go.
I started with pushing up the colors in LAB color mode and then ended upp choking them a bit with a few different adjustment layers along with some masking of them.
Bit of dodging and burning and yadda yada.
A later look revealed an unwanted flare across his shirt. Thought about trying to remove it but I couldn’t be bothered with the effort. Cropped it and sharpened it. All changes was made in LAB color mode.
Don’t know really but I think it looks a lot better than the rather flat picture straight out of camera?
