So, from one of yesterday’s photos, someone suggested increasing the exposure on the picture. I’ve never really tried to understand the histogram, and would just eyeball increasing the exposure in Lightroom until it looked visually appealing to me. But I tried to make sense of the histogram for this picture and increase the exposure until it somewhat evened out.
However for this next photo, I didn’t want to look at the histogram at all. I’ve attempted split lighting before, but wasnt very successful. This time, I looked at the pictures that I took today, and what did I get from Ariya today but split lighting. Awesome. Totally by accident. I just adjusted the levels a bit and added a matte effect and here is the result.
