Dramatic Portrait Editing Lightroom Workflow

On this video J.T. Shaver from the Photoshop Video Academy demonstrates his workflow for creating a dramatic looking portrait using Lightroom.

Sometimes you might be looking to add drama to your image. Lightroom makes this fairly easy, and on this video Shaver shows just how powerful the tools in Lightroom can be when you need to transform something plain into something dramatic.

Adding more drama is not just for portrait images. In the past we have looked at ways to add dramatic color using Photoshop Camera RAW to an image. Photographer  Gavin Hoey also helped us demonstrate how to create drama in your picture using a single speedlight and a bit of Photoshop magic.
