How To Turn Boring Photos AWESOME In Just 5 Minutes Using Lightroom - #002 LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY!



this picture is too dark it's not up to anything well I don't believe so because I'm going to turn it into a photo like this at the end in just about five minutes bringing up the shadows as well as the blacks is going to be very important along with the – contrast and along with that I actually want to bring up the exposure a bit and also bring down the highlights slider now the reason I shot this so dark is so I could still have all the brightness in the sky there and as you can see it works pretty well now furthermore I'm going to increase the vibrance by just a little bit around 20 and overall I want to make this picture very very blueish so it would have even a bigger contrast with the warm tones I'm going to add towards the houses so that already looks pretty close to what I envisioned to be honest but I'm just going to go real quick into the split toning add a touch of warm fear nothing crazy at all and go into the shadows to add some light blues into the shadows as well so overall the look for the sky for the water looks pretty good to me but of course the houses are kind of boring and don't really work if they are that blue so what I'm going to do before I go into the doctrine burning real quick is just crop the picture to kind of a more panoramic aspect ratio and now I'm going to go into the dark and burning I like to use the real filter and I'm going to add a very very big filter I'm just going to add some – exposure like crazy real quick so you can actually see how big this filter is and then I'm going to drag it all the way to the left and make it even bigger so it really has to look something like this it also really helps to bring down the exposure by like four stops just temporarily so you can see which areas the filter is sex then I'm going to finally reduce the exposure to zero again and bring some warms into the picture or rather just a filter mix that with some yellows in the color option of the filter as well then let's see perhaps a bit of plus saturation and also bring the tint more towards the green since this is very very purplish already with that we already have a huge difference if I just show you from before that one soldier – after you see the rest of the picture isn't affected at all but the village itself looks much better now that we've done this very broad and big filter I want to go into more detail for that I'm going to add another filter so now I'm just going to go over some parts of the pictures I click duplicate that filter and just make certain areas a little bit brighter a little bit more warm you always want to just all the settings according to the area that you actually adjust different areas need different amount of exposure and warm so you always want to make sure you have that look at natural and not overdone but with the step 2 of the radial filters being done I think I'm going to go to the last and final step which is step 3 and that is just a very kind of small filters with even more exposure even more warmth but with this last batch of filters I'm going to be way more selective and as you can see here there are some lights in the windows already so I really kind of want to emphasize them and again not go over every single part of these houses but rather add interest by having this selective exposure and warmth here so after all of that I'm going to real quick add some – exposure filters as well just in between some of these areas that way you can ensure that some areas to look in you know interesting and you don't have everything too bright and I'm going to add another one over here you really should probably spend a little bit more time with that but again I want to keep this video at around 5 minutes so with that being said I think that already looks pretty good now I'm going to go real quick and add another filter over the sky here that is so I can actually decrease some of these yellow tones these nasty ones in the sky right here so just a little bit – saturation and in exchange add some warm into actual color tool and I think that looks way way better now with all that being said I think I'm just going to say that I'm done you know I really should probably add some color noise reduction the picture is kind of noisy perhaps even noise reduction but hey this is a five minute edit and I'm going to say that I'm done here so let's see in the history this is from before any adjustments and I mean it's just a world of difference from pretty much complete blackness into an actual pretty cool picture if you ask me sure maybe some more fine-tuning and stuff but considering that I've only spent five minutes on this and that we have such a diversion in color from the blue tones that absolutely love in the sea and the sky to the very warm tones of the actual village ideally you would want to shoot this in an HDR sequence but if you'd only have one raw file you can still get a pretty cool picture at the end so take care guys and see you in the next episode

    Does the RAW editing reduce your picture quality in any way ?

    Awesome work and great instructional videos. Thank you. I am a subscriber! I do have one tip for you…(lol)… To get the before and after picture, just use the "Y" key (Same with Alt-Y and Shift-Y). If you like to use the mouse, the icons with the "Y" below the bottom left of the image does the same thing.

    Dude, I like your videos. i've learned a lot. I think a happy medium could be reached. Your into the very crazy real quick stuff now. Not sure what happened but somewhere in between now and then would be perfect. Thanks again for the videos. Keep it up!

    Did you take bracketed shots for this scene and try HDR? Maybe you did not have a tripod, but I have been surprised by what I get just hand held.

    wow I love it…! Looks it also good with a worse camera? I use the sony alpha A58 that is pretty good but I think yours is much better.

    interesting what you can do in just 5 minutes. But I believe that you explained much too quick and I would have prefered 10 to 15 minutes instead.

    When you go out to shoot do you try to take neutral pictures of landscapes? Or do you have a plan in my mind of what kind of image you want to capture?
