    • Brightness & contrast
  • Before: slightly underexposed Increasing the exposure brightens the photo
  • Shadows make the left side of the face and the eyes a bit dark Using the “fill flash” slider in the Camera Raw plug-in eliminates shadows.
  • Shadows make the left side of the face and the left eye a bit dark Using the Highlights and Shadows adjustment in Photoshop brightened the photo
  • Using the Curves tool in Photoshop brightens the photo and increases the contrast
  • Crop
    • The rule of thirds
    • Off-center
    • Eliminate background clutter to highlight subject
    • High resolution of today’s cameras allow for experimenting with crop (shoot wide, crop tight)
  • Cropping The original photo is a fairly uninteresting snapshot. With some straightening and cropping, this shot becomes interesting.
  • The rule of thirds
  • If you can’t remember the rule of thirds, just remember that an off-center subject is more interesting than a centered one.
  • Cropping out unwanted clutter in the foreground or background makes a photo more interesting.
  • The high resolution of today’s cameras allows photographers to shoot at a wider angle, then crop accordingly.
  • Color
    • Temperature
    • Saturation
    • Black & white
  • The fluorescent lights in the stacks are a different color than the natural light coming in the skylights. Lowering the temperature makes the natural light too blue (left); raising it makes the fluorescent light too yellow (right).
