Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Crafting a unique color look, part of Lightroom: Creative Color.
- [Instructor] Let's take a look at an example…of crafting or creating a custom look…in a photograph using the HSL controls.…With this image, we'll start off in HSL…and we'll finish the image off using…our basic adjustments.…Now with this photograph I was trying…to create an image based on a concept…which was this idea of the weight of time.…I have this blue backdrop in the background,…this old scale here, and then the hourglass above.…With this image, what I want to do is remove…the yellows and the oranges in here…and also fine-tune the blues.…
So if ever I have a vision for what I…want to do, I go straight to the tool,…in this case HSL, go to saturation and just…pull out the reds, oranges and yellows.…Just drop those way down.…Next I want to brighten that area up,…so I'll go to the Luminance tab,…and then we can click on this,…you can see how it can brighten or darken that.…What that does is is also remove some of…those little blemishes.…Often we have blemishes in our red channel,…so by brightening this up, it gets rid…
