Last Friday, I went to Seattle for a weekend getaway with my family. This photo was taken in the Seattle Public Library while I was visiting the city. As you can see in the original photo, even though there were many windows around the building, the interior was still dark and lack of natural sunlight. Moreover, since I have set micro-mode in my camera, the left side of the photo seems to fade away and only focus on the windows. It was not a bad thing at first, however, I felt like the left side took away too much attention from the photo and did not make the windows pop out at all. It also made the photo very blurry and dull as well. Thus, I first cropped out the some part of the left side of the photo. Then, I applied a new adjustment layer to the photograph and selected the mode to multiply. It immediately enhanced and brightened the color of the image a lot. After that, I added a new adjustment layer again and this time I chose curve as to balance out the darkness in the bottom. Then, I used the “dodge and burn” technique to add more texture to the windows, as to make it the center focus of the photograph. Lastly, I added a new adjustment layer to the photo again and this time I chose saturation and I was really impressed with the result because it toned back the color of the photo. Especially the red carpet on the floor and the study lights, they both made a beautiful contrast with the blue windows on top.
