    How to make sand white??? :)

    I am a wedding photographer based in Miami. I shoot a lot of beach weddings. Some of my clients want me to make the sand white. How do you achieve this so it looks great?

    I have tried to desaturate the sand however I just don't like how it looks. It looks muddy and not real. How do you achieve the white sand look without traveling to Micronesia....?

    Thanks so much!

    What I would do is (in Photoshop) create an adjustment layer, mask off the sand, so nothing else is effected, & use the Color Balance adjustment. This allows you to control the coloring of the hightlights, mid, & shadows separately.

    I do not use Lightroom, so I can't comment on that program.
