Setting up the Lightroom
To setup Lightroom for this lesson, please refer to Lesson #4. First, open Demo Catalog and then select the photo of two young people.
Next, I suggest watching this short video to be more comfortable with the entire process.
Editing Portrait Photo
For the final editing lesson, I selected an outdoor portrait of two people. You will notice that both faces of the couple are underexposed, the skin color tone is shifted towards red and the skin is a bit oversaturated. We can address all of these issues by using the Lightroom Rapid Editing.
Below is the final version of the same image after I used the Lightroom Rapid Editing. I outlined the process in details in Lesson #4.
All in total, it took me 3 steps (clicks).
Use the exact editing steps to achieve the final look:
- In Style preset
- 08 Open Shadows ++
- 33 Vignetting +++
Here is the Lightroom Preset Editing Formula for this shot where each number inside the brackets represents a specific ADJUSTMENT from the TOOLKIT collection: In Style (08, 33).
Next, use the Snapshot functionality to save the editing version.
For the Snapshot name, use the Lightroom Editing Formula (please refer to Lesson #4).
Exercise for this Lesson
Using Lightroom Rapid Editing create 2 more editing versions of the same photo on your own.
I prepare for you 2 new formulas to follow. Please complete the editing steps of the following Editing Formulas.
When you are done, save each version as a new Snapshot.
And this is the final editing versions for your reference:
Soft Shadows (1, 7, 33)
Clear Face (7, 27, 33)
