Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Adjusting lighting, part of Learning Lightroom CC.
- [Instructor] Often, the biggest impact you can have…on a photo is to adjust its brightness and its contrast.…And Lightroom CC's light panel gives you a full range…of controls to do just that.…I'm gonna open the light panel with this image open…from the exercise files, because it gives me a chance…to show off the main controls here in the light panel.…I usually start at the top of the light panel…and work my way down, but there's nothing wrong…with going out of order if there's something really wrong…that you need to fix first, and you can always go back up…and tweak a slider that you've already moved.…
So let's start with exposure.…Exposure adjusts the overall brightness of a photo.…If I drag to the right, that makes the photo lighter.…If I drag to the left, it makes it darker.…I'm just gonna make this a bit lighter.…And then we have a Contrast slider.…Now, contrast is different than exposure.…Contrast means the degree of difference…between the light and the dark parts of the photo.…A contrast-deep photo has very bright bright parts…
