Exposure is the first thing that needs to be fixed when editing an image because exposure affects everything else. What are some common exposure problems that people generally run into? In this video, Richard Harrington walks you through fixing an image that is too bright with Adobe Lightroom.
- Exposure problems are one of the first things…I tend to fix in an image.…That's because exposure affects everything else.…Darken an image, and the colors get more rich.…Lighten the image, and they tend to wash out.…Let's tackle some common exposure problems.…Let's switch the exposure problems group.…And make sure that you're viewing the images…in the order that they were loaded.…You could choose view,…sort,…file name.…Let's start with this first image here,…which is a bit overexposed.…
The camera was on the wrong settings,…and I can see that looking at the histogram here,…how all the data is slammed to the right.…Ultimately what we want to do is balance things out a bit.…I'll go to the develop module, and I see the histogram.…What's nice is you can actually just click on the histogram…and move things around.…So notice, I just drag the midtones back to the middle.…And with the raw file, it looks quite a bit better.…Next to it is the highlights.…So I can still pop the highlights,…or recover them so that they are not quite as bright,…
