In this Lightroom tutorial, we’ll talk about how I like to use the Curves, Details, Split Toning, White Balance, and Camera Calibration features in Lightroom to quickly transform an evening portrait into a dark, moody, cinematic image. We’ll talk about balancing the colors in the photo, cooling off shadows, toning down highlights, working with the Curves adjustment, working with color channels inside of Curves, and much more! If you’re a photographer, you’re going to love this tutorial!
