How this
image was

Adobe Lightroom Classic


Basic Panel, HSL Sliders, Detail, Effects, Radial Adjustment, Brush Adjustment, Gradient Brush, Spot Removal

This was one of the first images where we spend a significant amount of time on to really bring out the very best we could. So many things inspired me for this image, but mostly the warm sunset that was just out of frame and the way we framed the couple in the mountains with that cloud just on top. We had to find a balance between keeping the dynamic range of the image pleasing and the skin tones & textures to a more muted feel.
