Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Creatively improving color, part of Lightroom: Creative Color.
- [Narrator] Sometimes you'll find yourself using…the HSL controls in order to create more correct…or accurate color.…And other times you may want to use the controls…in order to have more creative or interesting color.…Well let's take a look at a workflow example…where the HSL controls can help us out.…This is a photograph from Seattle…of this beautiful public market sign.…And with this image I want to go through a basic workflow…and then finish the image off with HSL.…So here in the Basic panel I've decided I want to…brighten the image up a little bit and add some contrast.…
And when I brighten the image up,…I like the brightness of the blues,…I also like how it's bringing out…some of the red of the roof.…But the brighter areas like these tones here and down below,…they're a little bit washed out.…Well we can bring some of the detail…back using our highlight slider.…So that's really nice, right?…When we darken up an area that has color in it…we see more color saturation.…Well that's a good thing.…Then I'll go ahead and bring up a little bit of my shadows…
