So you’ve taken an underwater photograph on your camera, GoPro or even your iPhone, but don’t know where to start with the editing, sound familiar?
Here at Girls That Scuba, we have created a new set of 8 preset filters for use with the free Lightroom Mobile CC app to help you achieve a professional photo finish without the need for expensive gear and editing software... simply snap, click and then post!
Our presets are filters that instead of just applying a film like regular editing software, specifically target areas of the photo such as individual colours and clarity.
Each preset has been designed to achieve a specific result whether you’re looking for deep, tropical or pastel blues. The pack contains 4 underwater presets, 1 half and half preset as well as 3 over water presets for those back to the boat memories!
NOTE: We have tested these packs on a variety of different skin tones/ light/ backdrops but ultimately every image is different. Depending on where and the time of day you shot, you may need to make a few simple adjustments.
All skin tones are different. To adjust your skin tone, move the saturation and luminance slider of the oranges and reds.
You can also decrease the saturation if you wish to achieve a more natural skin colour.
Use these 4 main sliders to help your image pop a little more:
EXPOSURE (Lighten or darken your photo)
CONTRAST (Lighten or darken the shadows)
TEMP/TINT (Warm or cool)
VIBRANCE (Vibrance is a less aggressive version of ‘Saturation’ and helps make those colours pop or mellow them out).
