One of the most subtle but crucial aspects of any portrait is the skin tones. And while you can spend lots of time in Photoshop tweaking them to be just right, sometimes, you do not want to invest that much effort into an image. This excellent tutorial will show you how to get better skin tones using only Lightroom.
Coming to you from Signature Edits, this helpful video will show you how to get better skin tones when working in Lightroom. Color grading is one of the best ways to give your photos a signature look that sets them apart from other photographers, but it is important to pay special attention to skin tones, as unnatural looks can feel very out of place to the viewer. Even if you are not going for a more artistic or cinematic edit and just want to produce a natural, pleasing portrait, spending a little extra time on making the skin tones look just right can be the difference that makes a portrait look truly professional. Furthermore, Lightroom offers a surprising amount of control over colors — more than enough for a lot of photos. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
