How to adjust the color of water

Hey guys!

Today, I’m so excited to show you how to adjust the color of water using Lightroom CC (you can download the app on your mobile, and it’s free). So, if you’re interested knowing how to change brown water color into blue especially in your beach photos keep on reading!

You should take in consideration the Lightroom HSL (Hue/Saturation/Luminance) panel:

Hue sliders affect the purity of individual colors in your photo. For instance, moving the blue Hue slider to the left shifts all blues in the image toward aqua, and sliding it to the right shifts them towards purple. In this photo for example moving the green Hue slider to the right shifts all greens in the image toward aqua.

Saturation sliders affect the intensity of individual colors in your photo. A saturated color is vivid, and desaturated colors appear faded. Too much saturation looks hokey and obliterates detail, so resist the urge to oversaturate.

Luminance sliders affect the lightness or darkness of individual colors in your photo. These sliders can be particularly useful if you want to enhance sunrays or dappled light.

It’s important to remember that even though each slider in the HSL Panel represents a single color, they are still making global (whole image) adjustments. If you move a blue slider, it affects everything blue in your shot.

Tips for beach Photography

Hi guys!

Today, I’m really excited to share a few tips to help you this summer when you hit the beach in search of the perfect shot! If you’re interested in learning those tips keep on reading.

1- The first thing to do is find something of interest which will act as the main feature in your beach photo. Here are some ideas:

1)Rocks

2)Sand

3)water

2- Look for a composition which will lead the viewer’s eye into the scene.

3-When shooting a beach photo which includes the sea and sand, remember the “rule of thirds” and don’t place the horizon in the center of the frame. Also, make sure your horizon is straight.

4- Try shooting around sunrise and sunset, for a softer light quality with less contrast. These times of day also produce some fantastic colors, with long shadows that bring out the beach’s texture.

5- Look for Reflections!

6- A great way of adding interest to your beach photos is to include objects in the foreground.

7- To make your beach photos stand out, try searching for some vivid colors

8- My final tip is one that I find really important in landscape photography, and that is to turn around to see what’s behind you. Often, we’re so focused on the beautiful scene in front of us that we forget to look at what’s behind us, and you could be missing out on some amazing shots.
