dylbriens: "I'm sure you get the question 'how do you color so well?' a lot, but I was just wondering where you learned or if any blogs in particular inspired or taught you? I'm trying to improve all aspects of my editing and while I don't want to be a burden, i'd appreciate knowing kind of how you got a grasp on coloring so vibrantly. Cheers!"

i actually never get asked that so this is a welcome surprise! i guess it’s just a combination of things that i’ve used with other psds or learned from tutorials

lately, all i do is an s-shaped curves layer for brightness/contrast, a saturation layer, a warming photo filter on 50-70% opacity, and sometimes a color balance layer
