Editing this picture was one of the hardest ones we’ve had to do because the light from the candle mixed with the very low light of the evening sky caused quite a bit of tonal contrast. This edit involved a lot of finer work than just applying a base preset and doing a few corrections.
It was important to have the skin tones look good, while also being warm because of the candle. We also wanted the candlelight to have more of a glow, than a very “thin” look to it. The more spread out the light from the candle, the more interesting it became.
Darn! We're sorry we couldn't get a better rating from you
