Step 1: Starting with a good quality photo, whether it be on your iPhone or a DSLR, is essential.
For me, if I’m lucky, I can capture the ideal photo within the first 5 shots but realistically it will take me around 15-20 shots to find the perfect one.

Step 2: Once I’ve selected my desired photo, I use “Snapseed” which can be found in the app store. If you are wondering how I desaturate the background of my photos this app is it! I use the Brush tool which allows me to adjust the exposure and saturation of my photos. The best part is that you can manually select the specific areas of the photo.

Step 3: Then, I import my photo to the “VSCO” app which I use to filter my photos. My go to filters as of now are S2, A6 and HB1!

Step 4: This step is not always needed but if you want to edit out unwanted items in your photo, “Touch Retouch” is it!

Step 5: Before the photo is complete, I use Instagram to ever so slightly tweak the brightness, contrast, and sharpness of the photo.

Step 6: Upload away!

FYI: this may seem like a lot to do but once you get the hang of it, it should only take a good 5-10 minutes. This is simply just how I edit my photos but feel free to play around with these apps or explore others!
