Once again I’m using the same photo as a starting point. As you can see, there are some strong blue and red lights in the photo.

01 Original

The first thing is to reduce the amount of vibrance to value -47. It affects mostly the saturation of the blues and the reds of the photo.


The purple tint of the photo is created in Lightroom’s SplitToning module. The shadows are pushed towards purple¬†whereas the highlights are pushed towards yellow or orange.


So here’s the final edited photo.

I am a rock photographer (camera owner) from Helsinki, Finland. I play guitar in pop punk band MadCraft and started rock photography by shooting photos of bands that we played with. As I noticed that there aren't many music concert photography focused Lightroom presets around, I decided to share the ones that I create during my editing. Presets can be used as they are or they can be used as a starting point, so they are suitable for beginners and more advanced music photographers. If you'd like to support my work, check out the Buy Presets section! From there you can buy preset packs, which will give you a bit easier access to my presets.
