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:







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.

Filter for summer photos


To get this filter color:

-Preset: C1 +12

-Exposure: -2.5(to add more shadows)

-Temperature: -6.0 (to make it cooler(colder))

-Tint: -3.5 (to make the cactus look greener)

– Skin Tone: -5.0 (to make the flowers pink)

Those settings are not 100% exact because it depends on the photo that you take. Make sure to take pictures of colorful subjects especially blue and green. For example, those photos that I took were very warm that’s why I pulled the temperature down to (-6.0). This filter will look very beautiful on nature and beach photos!

How to edit photos on your phone

Hey guys!!

I’m really excited today to share this with you because a lot of you were asking me “how I edit my photos, what apps I’m using, tips on having Instagram aesthetic, and how to improve your Instagram feed”. So, I decided to share this post to give some tips for beginners who maybe just started editing their photos. If you are interested in learning how to edit your photos and improve your Instagram feed keep on reading.

The first app that I like to use is “VSCOcam”. A lot of you guys have probably heard of it. This app is really good if you just started getting to editing, and it’s a free app.

The fun fact that I couldn’t sleep and started taking photos because I was bored (remember one of my tips was to shoot every day). So, I will be showing you examples on the photos that I just took.

Once you upload your photo on VSCO, bunch of filters will come up. I recommend you using the “A” series. I use “A4” for brown, neutrals, and whites. Or, I recommend for “C” series, if you’re looking for more colorful vibe. Also, I recommend for “HB” series, if you’re looking for light blue or dark blue vibe.

Once you picked the filter, you can start editing. I’ll share with you some of color editing buttons:

– “Exposure” is how much bright you want your photo.

– “Sharpness” helps the photo to look clearer.

– “Saturation” makes the color of the photo pop or the contrast.

– “Temperature” makes the photo have a warm or cold feel.

– “Grain” has been popular on a lot of the posts lately. It gives vintage feel and texture to the photo.

So, these are the photos that I took before and after editing. I’m sharing exactly what I did to have this filter on your photos.

I used the “C1” filter

-exposure: -1.0

-contrast: +2.0

-saturation: +0.5

-temperature: +2.5

-tint: -2.5

Later, I will be sharing more filters to help you having an aesthetic Instagram feed.

If you are already using VSCO and you want to do more with editing and get advanced. I recommend using “Lightroom CC”. I just started using it on my computer. That’s more advanced, so if you’re a beginner and you want to learn what Lightroom is all about. You can download the app on your phone and it’s free on the app store.

That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed reading and if you did, don’t forget to give this post a like and to follow my blog (by email).
