In order to create vibrant colors, the first ingredient is photographing a scene with vibrant colors :) We then adjust each image from scratch, (also called a Raw File) and fine tune the contrast. We adjust the contrast as high as possible while maintaining detail in the darkest blacks and brightest whites. It is the full range of detail that will give a full range of color. Once a strong contrast with detail has been achieved we then may saturate the colors a bit more. We want to make sure to not abuse the tool and over saturate. Otherwise skin tones can turn orange and the scene can look to fake.
