ПРО ОБРАБОТКУ ДО/ПОСЛЕ – Листай и Сохраняй * Речь будет идти о моей повседневной обработке, поэтому если хочешь научиться так же, я делюсь своими секретами ниже * ДНЕВНОЙ СВЕТ. Запомните эти два слова, пожалуйста Чтобы красиво обработать фото, исходник должен быть так же качественным. Но если так случилось, что фотография безумно нравится и она сделана в плохом освещении, то тебе в помощь мое ЛЮБИМОЕ приложение “Lightroom”. Замечательно вытягивает любые цвета и творит чудеса! Первым делом захожу в него и редактирую фото с помощью своих пресетов (собственно настроенных фильтров), которые помогут сдерживать все фото в единой цветовой гамме. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ СОВЕТ Не пожалейте времени, разберитесь в этом приложении, настройте цвета как Вам нравится, придумайте свою собственную обработку – это и будет Вашим крепким фундаментом ☝️ Перехожу во “VSCO” и накладываю поверх фото ещё один фильтр, только НЕ на максимум! К моим пресетам нравится использовать серии A2, A8, С4-9, E5-6, Q3-5, S1-3. На данном фото фильтр С9 +5.2, Экспозиция +0.7, Контраст -0.5, Температура -0.4, Оттенок +0.5, Телесный цвет -1. Вуаля Следующим действием убираю не нужные предметы. Есть два варианта. 1. “Photoshop Fix” – с помощью восстановления. Инструмент штамп ставим в место, из которого будем заменять предмет и аккуратно копируем. 2. “PicsArt” – с помощью второго фото без ненужных предметов. Загружаем фото и добавляем ещё одно (снятое с того же ракурса например без машины или людей), и ластиком (в левом верхнем углу) стираем не нужные предметы, таким образом соединяя два фото в одно. Далее в “Facetune 2” с помощью инструмента детали делаю акцент на предметах (всегда глаза, волосы и украшения). ✨ Лампочки на колесе обозрения добавила в отблесках✨ Эффект “снега” нанесла из потёртостей в “Afterlight” * Надеюсь, что Вам понравилось и будут полезны мои секреты обработки Если хотите больше таких постов, то прошу одарить меня ❤️, ➕ в комментариях и сохранением за старание _______________________________________________________ #некрашевич_обработка

Christmas goes into full swing when Brussels’ biggest squares deck out in their finest wares – that is, in a 22-meter Christmas tree and a stunning light show.
