Photographers : What you don’t realize about your Skin Tones!

  • The Secret to Consistency!

I would say that easily 75% of the editing concerns that come up in our workshops and coaching sessions stem from one of two common issues. Either the photographer doesn’t know how to create “pop” in their images or they struggle with a lack of liveliness and warmth! It’s SO HARD to look at your own work and realize what is missing and causing an issue!! After I show them how they can WARM an image without over-doing it, and how I ALWAYS make sure that we avoid grey/blue skin tones in our images, it’s like I showed them a WHOLE NEW WORLD!!!! It’s simple and yet this secret is overlooked, because it requires using a less-popular slider in Lightroom!!

Actually, he said a lot of things that really stuck with me but I can only remember a few of them because my habit when I am listening to a great speaker is to be ALL EARS and I never remember to take great notes. (I’m working on that) I may not remember everything he said but I do remember this… He said that EQ is more valuable and more vital to success than IQ.
