I am going to provide you with one more little bonus movie where we are going to take a look at how we can have some more fun with color. This is a photograph of my daughter Annika on the swing. What I want to do is just warm this image up and change the overall color and tone. So I'll go ahead and click and drag the Temperature slider to the right. Now already the image looks a ton better, and typically photographs of people, especially kids, look nice when they are warmed up a little bit. But let's say we want to push this even further. We want to overdo this effect. Well a lot of times its nice to then lower the Saturation just a little bit, in order to kind of even things out.
So we have a little bit more of this kind of faded yellow look. Next step is going to be to go over to my Split Toning. Here in Split Toning, all I want to do is add some tone in to my shadows. How about some reds? I'll bring in some of those nice, deep reds there. We can see that coming in, and in this case it's starting to look a little bit more like a faded, old photograph. We can then go back to our Basic panel, and here we can continually modify this till we find a sweet spot and then bring in perhaps a little bit of Fill Light or increase the Contrast. Again, just play with these controls until we come up with some interesting color combinations.
Let's take a look at the before and after here on this image. We can do so by going to our Presets panel. We'll press the P key. Here we have before, and then here we have after, yet another way to creatively work with color.
