I love the look that the below photos taken on Instax cameras have. The one with the giant teacups is my favorite — I like that the shadows seem pronounced and faded at the same time, like echoes, and there's a lot of light and vivid color.
In the second, I generally like the same things, although the lighting seems to be softer and the colors are different.
I'd like to know how to get either (preferably both) effects, using Lightroom or Photoshop. Finding presets or actions that have this particular effect on them has been surprisingly difficult.
Do you have any suggestions of places to look? Or do you have suggestions on edits to make on my own in these two categories:
- basic panel, tone curve, contrast
- any color settings that might be relevant, like split toning, color curves, selective saturation or desaturation
