Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Improving color and fixing clipping, part of Lightroom: Creative Color.
- [Instructor] With this next example,…let's take a look at how we can not only improve the color,…but also fix the clipping, which can sometimes happen…in our shadows or our highlights…without negatively affecting the color in the photograph.…Well, here we have a picture of a mom and daughter.…These are two of the family members…from the previous photograph that we just worked on.…With this image, you can see that…the sun is behind the two subjects here,…so what I want to do, is I want to open up,…or bring in some more light on the subjects.…To do that, we can go to our Basic panel…and just bring up the shadows.…
Now when we bring up the shadows,…we're definitely bringing in more light there,…but it's a little bit too washed out.…So if we zoom in on that area,…you can see that as I bring that up…it just becomes a little bit too washed out.…So I'll add a little more contrast back into the play,…which helps out with the color.…Now the idea for the mood for this photo for me…is to have it really just sort of bright, and ethereal,…
