Learn how to make your dusks and dawns more vivid, vibrant, and alive with Lightroom and Photoshop. This short, project-based course walks you through the steps needed to transform a dull sunset image into a beautiful photo worth sharing, using the tools in Lightroom and Photoshop. Leveling, cropping, retouching, and tone and contrast adjustments are par for the course, but Chris Orwig also shows how to take advantage of virtual copies to create different color treatments, and then combine those treatments in Photoshop for a really stunning final effect.
Hello my name is Chris Orwig, and welcome to this project based course, where we will take a look at how we can work with a sunset photograph and how we can make the colors in that image more vivid, vibrant, and alive. Our project will begin in Lightroom. We'll look at how we can level and crop the image, how we can retouch away distractions. We'll also enhance the overall color, contrast, and tone.
Then we'll look at how we can take advantage of what's called virtual copies in order to create a duplicate version of the image, so that we can process or change the color in a different way. Next, we'll examine how we can take both of those files, then open them up in a single Photoshop document. And this is where things will get fun, because we'll create a mask and we'll combine these two images together. We'll also examine how we can further fine tune the color by working with adjustment layers. Well, thanks for joining me in this course.
