Moody Instagram Look
Everybody knows them: The atmospheric, “moody“ photos on Instagram. Dark, high-contrast colours, not a soul around and absolutely stunning landscapes. Obviously, the photos don’t come out of the camera like that; they need extensive finishing. The contrast has to be adjusted, the saturation reduced or increased, the sharpness readjusted and so on. It is a long process and not done with just one single “click” on the shutter button.
Even my last portrait shoot brought a great deal of photo editing in its train, until I made them public. Programs like Adobe Lightroom help a ton and are used by every professional. So, everyone who wants to kick it up a notch should just watch one of the many Youtube Tutorials out there.
