    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

      If you use Adobe Lightroom or Apple Aperture (Capture One is great but not as intuitive) it’s really simple if you don’t take it so seriously and just play. That’s why I always say playing with color. As everything can be undone, just move all the controls around and see what they do. Also Lightroom has presets so that you can save something you like and apply with one click next time. I like to download other peoples and try them, then you can see what their settings were. I typically find others that are close to what I want then readjust the setting to see which setting was causing the effect I liked. Sort of reverse engineering. The key is to really go far with a setting to see what it does, the back it off to what you really want.

      And above all, just shake it up an play. You find more cool stuff that you had no idea of that way. Of course the other approach is years of classes and experts telling you what to do. I think playing around and discovering things is just more fun myself.

      Thanks for the comment.
