Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Darkening the sky, part of Lightroom: Creative Color.
- Next let's take a look at how we can use our HSL controls…in order to darken the sky area of this photograph…and also craft or create a unique look.…Here what we'll do is begin in the Basic panel…and go through a little bit of a workflow…and drop those highlights down…so I have a little more detail in that area…and add a little bit of contrast,…boost some of the shadows there.…I'm going to boost the shadows…a little bit more than I would normally…because I want to add some clarity.…Clarity tends to like to have…a little bit of brighter shadows sometimes,…so does contrast because contrast you lose…a little bit of that shadow detail.…
Make a couple adjustments here.…Drop the Vibrance down just a little bit.…Let's say that's it.…That's what we've done so far.…Rather than having sort of a normal looking picture,…I want to create a look where the sky…has a little bit more of a slate color…and I can control the brightness…and the saturation of the foreground as well.…We'll go down to our HSL controls…and here we'll go to Luminance…
