DO YOU EVER WONDER HOW PHOTOGRAPHERS create light-filled photos???
You know what I am talking about.
Photos with minimal shadows. Photos that are bursting with color. Photos that are flooded with light.
Light-filled photos doesn’t mean overexposed photos. It simply means there are more highlights and brighter ares that give off a light-filled look.
If you have been wondering how to get this look to your photos, then you are in luck! With a few tweaks in Lightroom, you can achieve this very look in just a few clicks.
Before we go any further, it’s worth mentioning that this is a lighting skill.
You will first and foremost need to know how to use light (either natural light or artificial light) to produce these types of photos.
If you have too many shadows in your photo, it’s going to be harder to add more light.
If you have harsh lighting, it’s not going to look bright & airy. Instead, you’re going to have a lot more contrast that will be hard to get rid of.
But, you can still get pretty good results with a few tweaks in Lightroom!
IN THIS QUICK VIDEO, WE WILL UNCOVER THE SIMPLE STEPS YOU NEED TO TAKE TO GET THAT BRIGHT & LIGHT-FILLED LOOK TO YOUR PHOTOS THAT YOU LOVE!
