How to Color Correct Landscape Images in Lightroom 3

By Pye Jirsa on June 27th 2011


(The Lightroom video tutorial in this post is just under the introductory text below. The working files for this Lightroom video tutorial can be found just above the video. So that we can keep on providing free paid-quality content, please share these videos and raise awareness of SLR Lounge by Facebooking or Tweeting the site and articles, thank you!)

Don’t worry, I didn’t assume that everyone out there shoots portraits only =). Time to move on to color correcting landscapes.

You will notice that with each tutorial, we are going to be using techniques we previously discussed, as well as learning new techniques specific to the type of photography we are working on.

In this Lightroom video tutorial, we are going to post produce 4 landscape images. Once again, we are going to focus on just getting our colors as close as possible to an accurate representation of what was actually in that scene. We will be using some new Brush and Graduated Filter techniques in this tutorial to create extra detail as well as to dodge and burn in certain areas of the image.

To see all Before and After versions of each image from this tutorial, please visit the Photo Album on the SLR Lounge Facebook Page.

    Do not believe that mineral makeup is any better for your skin than other makeups are.
    There were some indications that the closer the formula is to its toxic origins, the lower the chances of a successful immune response.
