Join Bryan O'Neil Hughes for an in-depth discussion in this video Challenge: Fine-tuning an iPhone photo, part of Enhancing iPhone Photos with Lightroom and Photoshop.
…For this challenge we'll be fine tuning this iPhone photo.…As you can see, it's got quite a few problems…and we want to see what we can do with it.…Got a few objectives.…We want to work on balancing the highlights and shadows.…As you notice there's a lot of information coming from a…lot of different places and it's not really working together very well.…We want to work in select events.…Are there things that we want to do one part of the image but not the other?…And we want to consider the fact that every iPhone image…has some sort of issues with lens distortion.…
So, want to consider those in there.…This should take you about five minutes.…If you choose to take longer and really run with it, that's fine too.…But, let's go ahead and get started and see what you come up with.…
Next, Bryan explores Lightroom and Photoshop techniques aimed at working around the iPhone camera's limitations and making mobile photos look their best: enhancing dynamic range, correcting lens distortion, reducing noise and enhancing sharpness, and much more. Plus, learn how to create HDR images and panoramas, and even lift still images from video.
