Last time started the topic of improving photos and then overslept a week
Let´s continue with the 2nd part
Easy things which I didn´t understand at the beginning but which really make a big difference are the parameters which make photos look better.
Today´s trends in photography (and those also changed a lot in the last 5 years) favour very clear, naturalistic and “spacious” pics.
Those are achieved in several steps:
1.The contrast of sharp and blur. The better the lens, the more beautiful blur it makes. You can also do it manually – sharpen the main object, blur the background.
2. The contrast of cool and warm undertones. It adds volume.
3. Dodge and burn
4. A good level of sharp. Instagram here is not a criterion, I only speak about real photos which can be printed in very big sizes.
