Once again the stage was full of red. I reduced saturation in order to see some more details. Then I slightly tuned the colors in SplitToning module. The final image looks like this.

23 – Lightroom Preset for Rock Music

23-deathstars-guitarist-live

I hate it when light technisians use red and greenish lights at the same time. Usually they don’t match as well as they should, and the result is awful. So I started by reducing vibrance and saturation to get rid of the green. Then I used SplitToning to bring back all of the colors. Highlights […]

Once again the base photo is the same as on the previous post. I decreased the saturation and compensated it by adding some contrast. The blue tone of the photo comes mainly from the SplitToning module. I added split tone only to the shadows. The final photo looks like this. DOWNLOAD THE PRESET

After the photo had the look I wanted, I used Lightrooms radial filter tool to add a orange vignette. This brightens up the photo and […]
