Mobile phone photography tutorial

all right thank you for finding this video
and in this video I’m gonna show you how to shoot a night and edit using
Lightroom on your smart phone if you want to see more videos like this please
be sure to subscribe and I’ll be sure to provide content regularly now I am in an
alley way at this moment and I want to take a photo using my iPhone as you can
see so I’m gonna open up my camera app and actually the iPhone can shoot in RAW
but you need an external app but I’m just using regular camera app right now
and what I’m gonna do is after composing I’m going to place my finger on the
highlights and what that’s gonna do is that’s gonna make the it’s gonna expose
for the highlights and that’s what I want it’s okay it’s the rest of the
picture is dark but if you expose for the highlights it makes it much easier
later when you’re editing because it’s much easier to expose to take out the
detail from the shadows and the darks than to try and take detail out of
highlights or overblown so I’m doing that a few times
alright so now comes the fun part I’m using my iPhone 7 to add at this
photo but if you have any smartphone you can pretty much do the same thing like I
said there is no excuse here is Lightroom cc yeah you can actually
download it for free and I’m opening it up here is our photo now as you can see
all the information in the highlights is preserved and I know the photo looks
really dark but that’s okay because it’s easier to take information out of the
blacks and the shadows than it is to get any information from the highlights so
if I were to have shot this as a normal picture I would have had real hard time
getting those colors from the bright areas but we can bring the shadows back
now I’m gonna open up the light panel and if you know my channel you know I
like to decrease the highlights and increase the shadows this just gives it
a more dynamic range and we’re gonna start by increasing the
contrast and the blacks boost it all the way we’re gonna increase the whites
until it gets to a color mean to a gets to a brightness that’s that looks good
so I think 74 looks good now I’m gonna start to decrease the contrast until the
photo looks the way I want it to so looks it looks good to my eyes right
there now I’m gonna go to a temperature and I want it to look a little bit
cooler so I’m a decreased temperature negative 10 looks good
the tint maybe but right now I’m liking the way it is and that looks good now
I’m gonna decrease the clarity because I like when there’s little kind of glow
around the neon lights and I’m gonna give it
I wouldn’t yet something like negative 15 there I’m liking it already but this
is kind of like a red-light district and I want to emphasize that by giving me a
little kind of red tone to the shadows so that’s what we’re gonna do just find
something to your liking okay okay that’s looking a little bit
cooler now and I could I mean I like the way it looks not temperature-wise so
maybe that’s too red bring it down a notch and that looks good I mean I like
the way that looks the highlights I I could give it some kind of crazy colors
if I want it but to be honest I like the whites the way they are right now so
let’s see what else we can do let’s call it the mixer I think we could play with
colors a little bit now this is to your liking but actually I like the green the
way it is but that yellow hmm actually the yellow looks is fine
also but this is all hit or miss the way you want to do it so I do like that kind
of hot pink so I’m gonna it’s a little too saturated I might reduce the
saturation and I’m gonna increase the luminance make a little bit brighter
okay now what else can we do actually I would like to increase the saturation a
little bit not too much where here we go it’s gonna give a
little kick and there we go that’s a pretty decent looking photo I might say
I like it so I hope you guys enjoyed this I phone editing tutorial and the
thing is you don’t need Lightroom to do this you can do this with almost any app
you can download whatever editing app and they all pretty much do the same
thing and they all have channel mixers and temperature and messy with contrast
and saturation so it’s to your liking and the reason I did this video is to
show that you don’t need an expensive DSLR or just whatever expensive camera
you want to buy to take this kind of photos you can start taking them right
now as you saw I took this photo with my phone and you could I could do the same
thing if you gave me a film camera or any camera really so no excuse and I
hope you enjoyed this video please subscribe if you haven’t already I will
try to make more videos and thank you very much for watching you

    Are you a wizard?

  5. It's looking like every light in my city is the exact same shade -_- I can't seem to get any colour variety in my photos, all the highlights are going to be pink/purple and I can't find a way to make them different from each other ๐Ÿ™
