Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Improving the color your photographs, part of Lightroom Classic CC: Creative Color.
- [Narrator] So how can we take what we've learned…about exposure, color, and tone,…and apply that to improving the colors…in our photographs so that they aren't…super vivid and vibrant, like the previous example,…but a bit more photorealistic?…Well, here we'll do that,…and we'll look at three different images…and three examples, starting off with this one here.…This is a photograph which is a reflection…of a building that I captured recently…when I was in Florence, Italy, and the image…feels a little bit flat, a little bit dull,…I want to bring out some more color.…
So, I'll just straight to the basic panel to do that,…and begin by increasing the exposure,…or sometimes by simply clicking on the auto button.…The auto button will give us an auto-adjustment…to these sliders and controls.…Sometimes, it will be close,…I may just need to modify them a little bit,…and here it looks like it might be nice…to modify them in this way,…bring a little more detail in my shadows,…brought my exposure down a touch,…and just need some subtle adjustments.…
