This is actually one of my favorite images that we captured during a shoot.…And I want to show you a really cool trick that I like to work with…to add a lot of drama to a shot and give it a very unique look.…So we're going to start of in Lightroom,…and then we're going to quickly step into Photoshop.…But not go really deep into doing a lot of heavy Photoshop work.…First thing I want to do is, I'm going to simply right-click…on the image, and I'm going to create a virtual copy.…It doesn't create any new media on your hard drive,…but it's going to give me two images to work with.…
Let's go ahead and open the first image up and tweak it the way we like it.…So I'm not going to worry right now about cropping or framing.…I am just going to go down here, make sure that we don't have any distortion.…So as usual, I will enable both my profile corrections and…my chromatic aberration.…And now I'm going to tweak the picture so that it pops a little bit more.…Add a little bit of clarity here.…Make sure my whites and my blacks. Now, I'm not worrying about the lights.…
