Even a magical winter landscape can sometimes look boring. That’s because a camera’s flaws can turn snow gray. But it only takes a few edits, like white balance and vignetting, to get the perfect picture. Take a look at how to spice up your winter landscapes.
It’s easy to get addicted to taking pictures in the great outdoors. That’s why it isn’t unusual for a photographer to be drawn to shoot a landscape shrouded in fog sooner or later. But do you know how to take and edit these pictures well?
You can get some of the most interestingly lighted photos by shooting against the light. But you also have to keep in mind that this light will expose every imperfection of your lens. Strong chromatic aberration will appear, details will soften, and reflections will appear due to light bouncing off your lens’s optics. Fortunately, you can tone down all of these defects on a computer.
Noise is common in photos. To some extent it can serve as a creative tool, but most of the time it’s a nuisance. It usually appears when you shoot in bad lighting conditions while using a high ISO. But you can remove it using computer editing. Let’s take a look at how to do that.
Enhance each part of a photo in a completely different way: brighten dark parts, add contrast to emphasize colors, or sharpen blurry areas. See the video and learn how to use the Filter Brush yourself!
Do you ever get the feeling that some of your photos just don’t have enough detail, leaving you wondering how best to add more? Try out the Clarity feature in Zoner Photo Studio X. It’s an effective way to give your pictures more punch without having to change their overall contrast.
Zoner Photo Studio is the ideal tool for shrinking your photos—no matter whether it’s just one, or hundreds at once. The dimensions of photos from modern cameras are often bigger than you need, and by shrinking them, you can save disk space or speed up your work with sending and sharing photos.
Pictures taken from the same spot in the same light conditions often can receive the same edits. But editing each picture separately can be demanding, especially when you need to give each picture the same values. That’s why there is a much faster way—batch editing the photos.
