For Part III of our editing series with Benjamin Von Wong’s Dead Sea photoshoot image, we added the finishing touches to the image by going back to Lightroom and applying both a soft portrait adjustment and a heavily-blurred graduated filter to enhance the dreamy, ethereal look that we’re looking for.
