If You Enjoy Simple Edits, You'll Love This Bright and Airy Edit!Apr 17, 2022
This edit was swift and straightforward to make. I was going for a bright and airy look.
Before I made the edits to get the desired image I wanted, I made some minor changes with frequency separation and some liquifying to the subject’s hair.

To begin the bright and airy look of the image, I brightened the whole image with a curves adjustment and played around with the saturation.
Since the image already has a lot of blur, I made slight adjustments to the blur to give a soft and dreamy feel.
With some adjustments to the color range and the Gaussian blur, it gave a gorgeous haze and glowed around the subject, adding to the end look I was going for.
I made some final adjustments to the edit to the skin to brighten it up and adjust some of the tones.
I always like to group my layers to see the difference between the original layers and see how the edit turns out. Turning the layers on and off helps me see in what direction my edit is coming.
It’s always fun to play around with some of the adjustments to see how they can transform the edit. If you would like to see the tutorial from beginning to end, you can sign up for a premium membership to access the full tutorial.
