Join us in a 54 part series on color grading with fine-art photographer Justin Lister as he takes you through his color grading methods for his portraiture, editorial, wedding, and fine-art personal projects.
Every new venture begins with a good foundation, and this is no different. Justin starts this tutorial by showing you how he lays out his Lightroom workspace. Once you have your workspace set, you will likely not change it again, so make sure you hear why he chooses this layout.
The contrast in an image can help it standout. Contrast can be taken to the extreme for sureal looks or inverted to help an image pop. Justin talks about all the ways he uses Lightroom's various contrast adjustment tools to get the looks he wants.
This is a tutorial on color grading in Lightroom, right? Why the section on black and white? Justin loves some black and white images and uses them in a lot of his work to tell a story. The absence of color is still a color choice and consideration.
