Living in Tokyo and meeting all kinds of people has been an amazing experience as a person and as a photographer. Everyone has their own aura and energy, which is catching!
In this collection I’ve included 10 Templates that enhance the natural colors in your photos and give a little sparkle inspired by my experiences meeting amazing people and visiting magnificent places around Japan.
Deep Purple — Inspired by a sunny and colorful day at the mountains in the Japanese countryside, this Template works wonderfully on images with lots of color.
Drama Queen — This Template gives a dramatic and powerful mood to the image. I love using it for photos taken in harsh midday light to increase the contrast and colors.
Find Me — Use this Template to enhance the blues and fade the blacks, giving your image a moody but still saturated look.
Foliage Pop — Inspired by the rainy season in Japan when the greens are bright and strong, this Template alleviates the highlights, making the greens more natural and bringing back the skin color affected by reflections of green foliage.
Hey You — Accentuate the overall contrast of your image, giving it a more dramatic and cooler look. I love using this Template for portraits taken on the streets.
More Light — This Template works beautifully on images taken during the golden hour. It increases the magical warm tones, making your photos cozy and soft.
On Film — Achieve a modern-vintage look with soft highlights and contrast. A little bit of grain makes for a more vintage vibe.
Only Exception — This is a soft black and white Template inspired by the cool people of Tokyo. Softening the contrast and highlights, it’s perfect for photos taken in harsh light.
Sekai Secrets — Who doesn’t love to take photos of beautiful people in traditional clothes? This Template was inspired by the Japanese kimono, which usually has red tones. It enhances the reds and fades the blacks, giving your photo a moody look.
Sunset Beauty — Japan has beautiful beaches, and this Template was inspired by spending time on the beach at the most magical time of the day — sunset. It gives warm and saturated colors and enhances the beautiful sky.
