STEP 6. FINAL COLOR PASS

Now that the skin has been perfected and all distracting elements removed, I move on to the final color pass. For me, this is a very simple step that involves increasing the contrast a bit (which will naturally add a bit of saturation), and sometimes adjusting the hue/saturation/lightness of the background.

Born and raised in Ontario, Canada, I knew from an early age I wanted to be a scientist. Starting my career in environmental chemistry, I ultimately ended up working with explosives for the Canadian government. I quickly realized I was not built for a 9–5, so I sold my house, packed up my things and moved across the continent to try my hand at photography. website: angelamarklew.com instagram: @angelamarklew
