Overlay to Improve Low Contrast


Look for images that have a low, soft or muted contrast.  Be sure they are unedited.  Images to consider: exposure shot on a cloudy day, in the early morning or in the evening, exposures shot in the shade.

     

 

Assignment: You are to edit 5 images that will benefit from a contrast boost

 

Composition tip: This works best with low contrast images (cloudy weather lighting or subject completely in shade, etc.)

 

Number of total images in album: 15

You will turn in different 5 exposures with a before edit image, screenshot of image open in Photoshop or Photopea with layers showing , and the final image
