Editing Night Images With Lightroom For Maximum Impact


Featured Products

This quick edit reminds me of HDTV.  You don’t realize how much detail is in an image on TV or on your screen until you place them next to each other. In this image by Debi Kemper of Heartfelt Thousand Words Photography you can see a wet street scene. But after using a few simple Lightroom presets, the drops of moisture, light and colors come alive.  Here are the details.

ISO, Aperture, Shutter Speed: ISO 3200, f/2.8, SS 1/640 at 56mm
