Lightroom is very powerful for photo editing and post processing, but it is equally useful for helping you to organize your photos. If you’re a Lightroom user chances are you take a lot of photos. And if you take a lot of photos I’m sure you’ve noticed that keeping them organized isn’t always the easiest task.
With many portraits you will want a soft and pleasing look, but that is not always the case. In this tutorial we’ll walk through how you can create an intense and dramatic portrait effect very easily in Lightroom. This effect will work very well with some portraits, especially when you want a rough or grungy feel.
One of the best ways to speed up your post processing workflow is to take advantage of Lightroom’s ability to save your own settings as presets. In Lightroom’s develop module you can save the settings that you have applied to a particular photo and then re-use those settings with other photos.
