1. Tinting the Image – A gerner effect makes colors appear cooler, thereby creating a vintage look that has a lot of impact on viewers. This is done by changing the color temperature of the image to make it look greener.
Tweak the contrast of your image, and adjust the slider that controls the overall tint. In general, image editors allow users to change the tint of images without having to work on specific areas of the image
2. Stylizing Action – What could be cooler than making an action photograph look more dynamic. You simply have to create duplicates of your original image and change the color channel so you will have a variety of color scales to work with. Predominantly green or blue are great for dynamic, stylized action photos. When the stylized image duplicates are placed side by side in a single layer, a good blurring effect is achieved.
3. B & W – For the fact that people are constantly bombarded by color, vintage styling remains important. When trying to emphasize the action that your subject is performing, a Black and White photo is effective. High contrast photos tend to undermphasize the background, so be sure to adjust the white balance and brightness so as to get the right balance of light and color your final product.
4. Pre-set Filters – Instagram and multiple mobile photo editing tools use pre-set filters to change the color temperature and contrast level of photos. Take advantage of your iPhone or Android device to take photos!
Being away from your PC or Mac should not hinder you from using available tools to express and create yourself. Neverheless, always remember to shot at the highest possible setting.
It's worth noting that you can remove pixels from an image but can not really add pixels to it once an image has been shot. That's why photographers like to shoot in the RAW format, knowing full well that it consumes a lot more space.
5. Sharpen Images – Digital sharpening through Photoshop and other similar software reduces or removes noise but also sacrifices some of the detail on your photos.
So, if you are ever going to sharpen your image, just do it on specific areas and not the whole image in order to preserve dramatic areas of expression. With too much sharpening, the realism and quality of your photo can be affected which deceivingly might not seem much.
