How to use the Contrast Slider in Lightroom to Make Your Photos POP

How do you use the contrast slider in Lightroom? The best Lightroom tool that almost always gets underused by most photographers especially beginner photographers is the contrast tool. It is an intimidating tool because if used incorrectly, you can potentially destroy your image. 

The contrast tool is my favorite tool to finish an image with. Once I edit a photo the way I like it, (landscape, portrait or any kind of image) I always go to my contrast slider to finish it up. 

Contrast makes the photo look real, it makes it look like a finished image. If you are ever in doubt of how to edit a photo or what you need to do to an image to make it pop, always go to the contrast slider.

When you watch the video below, you can see that the image above looks really good after I edited it and before I touched it up. However, once I brought up the contrast the photograph came alive. It made it look so much better. Like a suit without a tie, the contrast slider is the tie to finish off the suit. 

Contrast is just as important as anything else, but I always give it a bit more love than all the other sliders. Contrast brings the colors of an image together, it darkens the right spots and it makes your sky pop. 

When you use contrast correctly in combination with all the sliders in Lightroom, you will see a very large difference in your images. 

Contrast should always be adjusted in all of your images. Once you start to do it and getting familiar with it, you will see there is nothing to fear. 

In this video, you can see how I use contrast to bring my photo to life and to finish it off before sending it off to print.

8 Tips and Tricks to improve your Real Estate Photography

Real estate photography is a great way to make money on any market. However, a lot of photographers start out without knowing much about how to take great real estate photos. It is not the hardest thing in the world, however, it does require technical ability and an eye for the craft. 

In this video, I share my most used techniques when it comes to Real Estate Photography. Real Estate Photography can be lots of fun and a great way to make a living money. 

The Gear You Need

Here is the gear I recommend to get the best possible Real Estate Photos. You need a Full Frame Camera, a Wide Angle Lens, a Speed Light, a good Tripod. Keep in mind that most realtors will ask you for a full frame camera and a wide angle lens. I shot with the Nikon D800 and the Nikon 14-24mm to edit your images I recommend the best Real Estate Lightroom Presets out there. 

Here are my favorite ways to take Real Estate Photos to a new level.

1.  Use a tripod. It’s important to bring a tripod to your next shoot. A lot of homes can be very dark and by having a tripod it will guarantee a clean sharp image every time. 

2.  Use a flash. Having an on/off camera flash is a nice way to light up a room. This can help set the mood of a room by splashing a little light in a dark corner or a shadow.

3.  Move around. Do not stand in one place. Move around and find the best possible angle to get the best possible shot. 

4.  Use a wide-angle lens. Rooms are often small, a wide angle lens can create the feel of a big space. 

5.  Take your time. Do not rush the shots. Make sure you think about the composition and get the best possible shot. 

6.  Edit your photos. Once you have a nice collection of images, take them to a computer and edit them. I recommend Adobe Lightroom.  

7.  Use Lightroom Presets.  This speeds up your workflow and gets a consistent look on your images every time.  I recommend my Real Estate Lightroom Presets.

8.  Batch edit your images. This will speed up your process and guarantee a speedy delivery to the client.
