Step 4: Adjust Shadows and Blacks
Increase the Shadows by a bit and then scroll down to the Blacks and also increase them. Remember, less is more, do not increase by 20 or 30 points, more like 5-10.
Step 5: Adjust Colors through the Color Mix
Navigate to Colors and tap on it. Select the Mix found on the top right corner to access the different colors.
Step 6: Edit Turquoise Luminance
Increase the luminance of turquoise for your background to be lighter than your subject in focus. This makes the girl in my picture to stand out more.
Step 7: Edit Blue Luminance
Increase the luminance of blue as well for your background to become even lighter and your subject to come more in focus.
Step 8: Effects and Clarity
Go to the Effects tab, tap on. Adjust the Clarity of your picture by increasing it.
Step 9: Less Vignette
Decrease the Vignette for a little bit to have natural shadows on the corners of your picture and bring your subject more into the spotlight.
Step 10: Less Grain
Decrease the Grain to make your picture look more sharp. 20 is definitely too much Grain, aim for something between 7-13.
