Before I make any adjustments to specific areas of this portrait, I'm going to…adjust the overall tone and color here in the Basic panel of the Develop module.…What I like about the Basic panel is…that the sliders are pretty straight forward to use.…You just drag them from their defaults of zero to…the right or left, and they're set up in a workflow…where you can just start at the top of the…Basic panel and you work your way down through the sliders.…I'm going to skip over the White Balance sliders…because I'm pretty happy with the overall color cast of this image.…It's a little bit blue and I like that because it reflects the weather that day.…
I'll go straight down to the Tone section of…the Basic panel and I'll start with the Exposure slider.…The Exposure slider affects primarily the midtones in the image.…So if I hover over the Exposure slider and you look up in the histogram up here at…the top of the screen, you'll see that this…area in the center of the histogram is highlighted.…And that means this slider affects mostly the midtones in the image.…
