Quick Bathroom Edit
In this tutorial. I'm going to edit this bathroom photo. It's a pretty basic one. It's just two photos, there's no window pulls. So the first thing I'm going to do is any basic exposure adjustments. So for this photo, I'm going to just bring up my shadows a bit. I also gonna bring up the overall exposure just a little bit bathroom. I wanna make nice bright white clean. That's basically what I'm going for the white balance. I'm OK with right now because I'm going to blend it with this flash shot and I'm honestly not really going to do anything else right now. I'm just going to select these two right click edit in open as layers in Photoshop. You'll want to watch the advanced lesson on using actions to speed up your workflow because I have great actions that I've set up to auto align layers with F five instead of selecting them and going up to edit auto align layers. And I also have one for changing my ambient layer to luminosity mode opacity 50%. So check that lesson out. I don't wanna ...
walk through it in this lesson, but now we have this photo that looks pretty dang clean. So let me turn off this ambient layer see kind of what's going on. I like it on except the ceiling. I don't like that glare from the outside. So let me actually just let's see. So that's coming from this one. So I'm going to add this to a layer mask, take my brush tool, turn it to black with X on my keyboard and that looks pretty good. All right. So now I'm going to save it and this is going to send it back to lightroom. I've already edited this photo you can see here, but I want to show you this from scratch. So it's added this new version and really what I'm going to do is just go down to the transform tool, take my upright tool and I'm going to take this line of the mirror looking for what's prominent line and then this one of the door right here. It's kind of this one's gonna be hard. I'm not sure if this is gonna work or not. I might have to just crop it out. That works pretty good, pretty good. I'm getting a little bit of blur from the edge of our lens and it's pretty distorted. So I was using that, I believe it was the super wide lens. So let me just try to bend it just a little bit to fix it and that's pretty good. Helps just a tiny bit and I probably should have done that before. I used the upright tool, but now I'm just going to crop in from the left just a little bit. I kinda wanna get rid of this handle. Let me see if I can do that with the healing brush tool. Take my selection, move it up and that's pretty dang good. So, yeah, that does a really good job. That distraction is not there. I it's, there's still a little bit there. Let me see and I don't know if it, it almost didn't get that bit. So let me decrease the feathering. Yeah, that, that looks good. That looks good. Cool. So that is looking pretty dang good. Maybe just boost the contrast just a little bit, a little S curve, you know me, I like to do my S curves maybe. Is it too bright friends? What do you think might be hard for you to see on that screen? You're watching this on me? Bring my whites down just a little bit, make sure my white balance is on point. I mean, it's like the wall which should be a pure white makes it feel a little green to me. So I'm gonna remove that tint, let me just cool it down just a little bit. Or what I like to do instead is just go in, go to the HSL panel and bring down my yellows. Cool and orange just a little bit. All right. So that is this bathroom edit and I would definitely keep these things in mind and removing some of the yellow from a bathroom that you want to be pure white clean. Another thing I might do is just add a quick little linear gradient exposure, bump to the ceiling, something like that might be good. And then I'm going to uh actually subtract a bit from the wall so there we go. So you can see what I'm doing. I don't, I don't wanna go that extreme, but I think that just makes it pop just a little bit more. So that's a quick little bathroom edit. I hope you enjoyed this lesson and we'll see you in another one.
