To help with your photo editing journey, digital media junior Brody Demoya shares some of his editing life hacks.  

Tip 1: Exposure

With great photos comes great lighting, and if you don’t get it just right while taking pictures, edit! Exposure is a handy tool that you can use to adjust the amount of light in a photo and is incredibly helpful when it comes to framing a subject. “Make sure you’re always brightening the face instead of darkening it,” Demoya said. 

Tip 2: White Balance 

White balance is a tool that adjusts the temperature of a photo. “[White balance] makes your pictures seem warmer or colder,” Demoya said. “Make your photos look more natural by bringing out the blue or orange undertones. It can neutralize light sources, like yellow street lamps, which can bring out the clarity in your photos.”

Tip 3: Find Your Filters

On apps like VSCO and PicsArt, there are premade filters that you can apply to your photos. Some of them are black and white, some of them are saturated, and some of them give photos a vintage look. Demoya says his favorite is VSCO’s FP filter because it “looks like film stock.” Different filters can create different atmospheres depending on what you want the tone of the photo to be. 

Tip 4: Mess Around!

When you first get an editing app, it’s important to learn what it can do. “Just change all the settings and turn them all the way up or all the way down,” Demoya said. “And then, once it’s really dramatic, you know what it does.” Feel free to have fun with your photos.
