Lightroom Quick Tips – Episode 95: Shadow Color Cast Solution

by Anthony Morganti    @AnthonyMorganti

This is the 95th episode of Lightroom Quick Tips where I give a quick Lightroom tip.

Have you ever had an image with a color cast in the shadows? Most often it’s green or magenta but it can often be cyan or pink. Lightroom has a built in tool to handle that issue and I demo it in this video.

I Critique and Process YOUR Image – Episode 29: Danny

This is episode 29 of the video series where I critique and process your image.

In this episode, I process an image from Danny. With this image I process it completely in Lightroom then I do an alternate processing technique where I process one copy of the image for the Empire State Building then another copy of the image is processed for the rest of the buildings in the scene. I take both of those versions of the image over to Photoshop to combine the best elements from each of the two versions of the image.

I Critique and Process YOUR Image – Episode 28: Wendy

This is episode 28 of the video series where I critique and process your image.

In this episode, I process an image from Wendy. It’s an image with great composition and in the video, I talk about why that is and talk about scale and how it can be important to reflect in a landscape image.

All processing was done in Lightroom because I didn’t feel that any plugin would give us an advantage over Lightroom.

I Critique and Process YOUR Image – Episode 27: Jim

This is episode 27 of the video series where I critique and process your image.

In this episode, I process an image from Jim. It’s an image with great composition and in the video, I talk about why that is. I also demonstrate a trick I do for images that have a lot of haze, mist, fog or smog. Finally, I do a targeted adjustment to give the hillsides a bit more color depth and the overall image, a bit more tonal depth.
