How this
image was

Adobe Lightroom Classic


Basic Panel, Radial Adjustment, Brush Adjustment, Gradient Brush

For this edit, we wanted to keep it more on the dark/evening feel as this is what the moment was all about. The last remnants of light. Naturally, our couple are a bit darker than what we would usually go for but we liked the overall feeling of it. We started with our Protea presets as a base, and then systematically went through each slider and adjusted things to get the tones we liked. We then added in quite a few radial adjustments to enhance the light coming from the left of the image, as well as to create manual vignettes as well as to brighten certain parts of our couple. We then took the brush and did some very light dodging and burning on the couple.
