This time I reduced the contrast to value -41 and increased exposure, since the photo is quite dark. To recover some lost contrast I increased the clarity close to +100. I also reduced the saturation to -54.

Then I added a radial mask over the whole image. This way I could create a colored vignette. I selected red and then reduced the saturation of the vignette.

Finally I added a dark vignette from the Effects module.

The final photo with a color vignette looks like this.

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.
