I am using Adobe as my photo editor. When you work on your own photographs you will need to use an editor of your own. Many of the editors have similar functionality and you may need to match the terminology of your editor to the terms I use.
Taking the original photograph
Enhance the colour of the photograph by adjusting both the hue and the saturation and brightness.
And finally, change the lighting and exposure by adjusting lightening shadows and increasing midtone contrast
