If You Enjoy Simple Edits, You'll Love This Bright and Airy Edit!
Jan 31, 2018
This edit was very quick and simple 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 liquify to the subject’s hair.

To begin the bright and airy look on 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 going on, I made small adjustments to the blur to give a soft and dreamy feel.
With some adjustments to the color range and using the Gaussian blur, it gave a really pretty haze and glow around the subject that added to the end look I was going for.
Some final adjustments I made to the edit were 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 layer and see how the edit is turning out. Turning the layers on and off helps me see in what direction my edit is coming to.
It’s always fun to just play around with some of the adjustments to see exactly 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 get access to the full tutorial.
