Let's talk about it briefly. Japanese color is now a lot of photographers love the style, the kind of sweet and fresh and lovely feeling on the faces, but also by many young girls love, then today photographer Ahwin (micro-letter: Hanbowen) Examples to explain, the Japanese tone of the late adjustment and ideas, a look at it.
This is a relatively hasty shooting, there is no too many ideas, just want to shoot a group of campus fresh students image, so chose to have a sweet appearance of the model Danny Shoes, but then the palette of the film I did not imagine to be that effect.

HSL Adjustment project will be for several major colors, you can more freely increase or decrease the color, adjust hue, brightness. For this photo, I have mainly improved the brightness of "orange".
