When to Push Darks in a Painting

We all have those photos taken from the car window as we pass by a scene. So pleased we captured it, to only find out once we download it to our computer it's washed out and lacking contrast in value and color.  Has this happened to you?  

In this short video, I will walk you through how I salvage a bad photo by pushing my darks and getting back the contrast the camera failed to capture.

I hope these key steps will encourage you to relook at those photo references and start painting what inspired you in the first place.
