Help your washed out photos stand out with this easy Lightroom trick!

Washed out or washed up?

That's the common mistake when shooting at the elusive time of day that brings those gorgeous color tones.

I'm talking about golden hour (the time of day when the light becomes golden and less harsh on your subjects).

Golden hour might be great, but if you're capturing those glowy rays from behind at the cost of washing out your subject, then your photos lack the luster you were originally going for.

And honestly, who wants a lifeless, dull, and washed out photo???

I know I don't!

Not only is the washed out look a rookie photography mistake, it just doesn't give your photos the color and pop they deserve.

But, you don't have to compromise that golden light for a good photo - you can have both.

There are several ways to salvage this common lighting error, but I want to show you ONE way to easily help your photos stand out.

In this Lightroom tutorial, we will cover just how to make these kind of photos shine and become their most beautiful selves.

  • Great video, thanks for making! I’m just starting out and still getting to know my camera. I have found editing to be one of the more difficult parts and notice I spend a lot of time trying to edit for the perfect look but I am so lost.
