Fix your optics and get ready for processing...
Fix Camera Optics
To begin, tick off your camera and lens profile in the Enable Lens Correction and tick Remove Chromatic Aberration. (The video has details.)
Flattening the Light
You'll also want to flatten the light in your image so you can really get into post-work later. Make sure you don't have dramatic shadows or very bright areas in the picture.
Time to play with the color of the image and what effects you would like...
To easily fix color you can use the picker and click on an area that is black or white or neutral. If you want to be creative move the color picker around the image to see what the picture will look like... or you can easily use the sliders.
In the effects area, you can add a variety of ways to enhance your image depending on what you're going for.
To finalize your work add a bit of Sharpening and use the Selective Tools to tell your story.
Sharpen Your Image
Sharpening the image just a bit will give your work a crisp clean feeling.
When you use tools to selectively change areas in your image, you'll make the work yours.
After you’ve worked on these steps give yourself a day to remove yourself from the work. Trust me on this…
I always see my work with fresh eyes and feelings after I’ve removed myself from the computer for a bit.
