Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Double-up Lightroom edits with adjustment stacking, part of Photo Tools Weekly (2015).
- Hi, this is Jan Kabili…welcoming you to Photo Tools Weekly.…In this episode I'm going to show you…how to double up on adjustments in Lightroom…with a technique I call adjustment stacking.…What I mean by adjustment stacking is…duplicating adjustments multiple times…to bring out stubborn tones or details…that are beyond the range of just one application…of Lightroom's basic controls.…One use for this technique is…to help you rescue a low contrast photo like this one.…I'm gonna start out in the Basic panel…as I usually do when I'm adjustment a photo.…
If you've worked with Lightroom before,…you know that the controls in the Basic panel…are very powerful and can often be all you need…to optimize tone and color in your photos.…But sometimes the range of these sliders…just isn't wide enough to make use…of all of the broad range of tonal information…in a Raw photo.…In that case you can stack local…adjustments on top of your glogal adjustments…as I'm going to do to rescue this…very low contrast, or flat photo…that I shot in extreme backlit conditions.…
