Have you ever struggled getting your photos to look pure white? I always get asked how I make my photos bright and make the colours pop! Well, if you manage to get the white to be pure then you are one step closer to getting your colours to look great.

One of the biggest struggles for me when I started out with my photography was to make the whites look whiter, somehow shooting white on white always turned out blueish or yellowish depending on the time of the day and quality of light, especially since I shoot with Natural Light almost exclusively!

Editing at first used to take too much of my time, and as much as I enjoy the editing process, I always look for ways to save time on editing, this is why when I came across this tool in Photoshop, it was a lifesaver!

Check out this quick video using one of my favourite tools, it will literally take you less than 5 mins and your photo will be ready to be shared, whether it's for a client or your Instagram feed:

Now it's your turn!

Getting better & faster at editing your photos requires practice, so here is what I want you to do:

1. Spend the next 10 days using this tool with different photos and different scenarios till you master it.

2. Connect with me to let me know what worked and what didn't, I am always happy to answer your questions :)

As always, if you want your question answered or featured on #AskMahaMonday, feel free to submit it HERE
