Hi.

Welcome to the Sunday Project where I share what I make, discover, or just generally enjoy.

Dreamy Photo Edit

Today I thought I'd share how I got to this image:

I was thinking of calling this a tutorial but that seem obnoxious. I am in no way qualified to teach you how to edit your photos. So instead, I'll call this a quick tip on how to get that rosy/hazy effect. This photo was used for WAGW Online'sOld Romance Collection. I'm sure there are so many ways to do this but here is how I did it. Photos are a little fuzzy and I'm not sure why. The final results are above, click on it to see it larger on Flickr

What always helps me is to start with the final image in my mind and work from there. If you noticed, I gave no values or numbers for anything I used while working on this photo. That's because every photo is different and if I just gave you random numbers to input the effect would be different as well.

Would love to know what you think and if you have any tips or suggestions on how to do it better!

x,

Jack

I prefer to use Adobe Lightroom to sort and do basic edits on my photos. SOOC this image is put into lightroom where I tweak the settings a bit to get it looking as close as I can to what I saw in real life.

From there I opened it up in Photoshop. I decided to play with the colors a little to get the effect I had in mind. I added an orangey-brown color to the highlights in the image.

Then I added a tan/beige color to the shadows.

Finally, to get that hazy look, I put in a white gradient and lowered the opacity waayyy down.

I then saved it and went back into Lightroom. From there I tweaked the basic settings more. Then, using the split toning panel, added pinkish hues to the highlights and shadows and viola.
