    • 3. Exposure
      • Exposure itself
      • Fill flash
      • Adjusting highlights and shadows
      • Brightness & contrast
    • 4. Before: slightly underexposed Increasing the exposure brightens the photo
    • 5. 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.
    • 6. 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
    • 7. Using the Curves tool in Photoshop brightens the photo and increases the contrast
    • 8. 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)
    • 9. Cropping The original photo is a fairly uninteresting snapshot. With some straightening and cropping, this shot becomes interesting.
    • 10. The rule of thirds
    • 11. If you can’t remember the rule of thirds, just remember that an off-center subject is more interesting than a centered one.
    • 12. Cropping out unwanted clutter in the foreground or background makes a photo more interesting.
    • 13. The high resolution of today’s cameras allows photographers to shoot at a wider angle, then crop accordingly.
    • 14. Color
      • Temperature
      • Saturation
      • Black & white
    • 15. 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).
