Quiet Time – Toned in Lightroom


This picture was taken at the Black Country Living Museum just outside Birmingham in the UK. In most of the workshops,boats, houses and shops the staff dress in period clothing and tell you about the history of the buildings as you  walk around. This image was taken inside one of the terrace cottages;  the young girl was sitting reading in front of the window with a candle on the table. I just liked the relaxed pose so asked if she minded me taking a picture. It was taken at a 1600 ISO as I didn’t want to use a flash – I thought this would ruin the mood.  I was pleased with the  image when I downloaded it but I wanted to create a more atmospheric picture. In this video we explore how this can be done in Lightroom
