What drew my attention to this scene was the way the lighting highlighted the graffiti on the wall.  In this video we first  look at enhancing the image before adding a highlight and beams of light effect. Some of the tools used in Lightroom 5 include:-

  • Image details, Exif
  • Image adjustment
  • Lens correction
  • Composition - Cropping
  • Radial filter
  • Post crop Vignetting
  • Adjustment brush
  • Along with many other tips and tricks

    Hi David
    I am not a Lightroom person using Photoshop and ACR instead but I found this video very educational. In particular I was fascinated by your use of the colour measuring tool to get the right balance between rb&g. This is something which has confused me in Photoshop. I will enjoy trying to adopt some of the things learnt in the other programme.
