Some time ago I was in the city of Genova ( Italy ) for some street photos. During my walks I noticed a man near a poster at a bus stop:
Try these settings for a first editing on Snapseed . Only few passages to have a better photo. These settings are a good start to continue with editing.
Filter -> Drama:
- Filter Strength: +60
- Saturation: +20
Tool -> Tune Image:
- Contrast: +30
- Saturation: +20
- Ambiance: +20
Tool -> Detail:
- Sharspening: +40
I wanted to edit as soon as possible my picture, I was out of my house..but I have my Ipad. So I used Snapseed to edit my snapshot. I took this picture with my Fujifilm X100T.
This is the original picture:
First step Drama Filter:
- Filter Strength to increase the dramatic effect: +50
- Saturation to add vibrancy to the colors : +20.
Second step, Tune image:
- Contrast: to increase or decrease the overall contrast of the picture: +20
- Highlights: to lighten only the highlights: +30
On the balcony there was to much light, so I used Brush to reduce the exposition: -0.3 (see the red highlight )
Then I increased the Sharpening : +36
And finally Rotate and Crop the picture:
The result in only few editing steps:
Below and After.
This is a little elaboration with the app Snapseed ( on Ipad Air 2 ). Snapseed is a very powerful toll to edit our pictures.
I took this picture during the Lucca Comics&Games this year. This is a steampunk couple and to understand better the final elaboration, please read here: Steampunk
Original shot: I used a Fujifilm X100T.
First step:Drama filter to increases the levels of sharpness, contrast and saturation of the image. In this case a +50 effect and you can see the difference on the face of the boy.
Second step: Vintage filter to create a muted and vintage look. Have you read the Steampunk definition? 🙂
Third step: Grunge filter to have an old picture with a dirt effect caused by the time.
Last step: Details to increase the sharpen of the image ( here only +30 ).
So is this a steampunk-like style? What do you think?
