DO YOU WANT TO KNOW A QUICK AND SIMPLE WAY TO ADD SOME DRAMA TO YOUR PHOTOS IN LIGHTROOM?!?!
OF COURSE YOU DO!
Just by using Lightroom presets, filters, and adding a subtle vignette, you can create a visually stunning photo in less than a minute!
I use this combo A LOT to draw attention to the subjects in my photographs and it really does make a HUGE difference (check out the before and after at the end of this post).
The first thing I did to this photo was apply a preset from my Life in Color preset collection. This helped me set the base tone and color for the final look.
I also tweaked the temperature slightly by warming it up to help achieve the natural glow of the sunset.
I love images that pop with color and tone, so I adjusted my whites, blacks, vibrance, and exposure in the basic panel to create the look and colors I wanted.
Next, I applied a simple radial filter to add light back into the main focal point of the photo.
I selected the area I wanted to apply it to and then adjusted the exposure of the filter as needed.
*Radial filters are only available for Lightroom 5 & up
To finish off this edit, I added a subtle vignette around the edges to make the photo pop and add more depth.
More details about the creation of this photo:
Camera – Nikon D750
Lens – Sigma ART 50mm 1.4
Time of day: Just before sunset
Presets – Life in Color
