Editing Styles

Okay, now I want to talk about editing styles and you might be thinking sean, there's like a ba jillion editing styles. We just looked at adobe color CC. And you could see all of those different color combinations. I mean the possibilities are endless. Yes, but in my opinion, there's two main categories of editing styles, there's realism and they're stylized. So realism is basically trying to capture the most realistic look is possible. So capturing colors that are most closely related to reality. Um and same with light. So it's maintaining the true nature of when that picture was took. So this is popular with like photo journalists or people that are trying to capture things as realistic as possible. Whereas the other side of things is a stylized looks that's using colors that maybe aren't that natural. Um but you're using those colors because you want to have a photo that maybe sparks a different emotion or is aesthetically pleasing in its own way. So a lot of photographers kind of f...

ind a balance between the two. They might go for a stylized look that's stylized but not overly stylized. So they're still using colors, colors that are somewhat natural and maybe in some situations they might appear that way in nature, but most of the time they don't. Um and some photographers, you know, they like to go full on realistic and they just try to keep the colors as natural as possible personally. I think the stylized look is really cool, but at the same time, I don't like to stray too far from reality and make it look too foreign. But you can get some really, really cool looks when it comes to the stylized edits some popular ones that are going around online right now are the CN or blue and orange look. Um there's also the CNN pink or green and pink. You know, these are colors that aren't very natural. They don't actually occur that often. Um maybe in cities. They do, but for the most part they're not naturally occurring colors. But that doesn't mean they don't look cool and that doesn't mean they don't look good in images. So I just want you to think about, you know, where do you fit in? Are you going for a more realistic look? Are you going for an overly stylized look? Are you trying to find something in the middle? I think it's important to look at, you know, painters in the past, A lot of them were divided. A lot of them wanted to do realism ultra realism. They thought that true talent belonged in realism where other painters and other artists thought that it doesn't matter if it's realistic. It's about the aesthetic beauty of the image of the painting of the photo. So where do you fit in there? Are you more interested in a stylized look or a realistic look? That's something else to think about as you go on because that's an important step in finding your own unique style is to kind of find where you fit in on that spectrum of realism versus stylized.
