tone curve is probably the best reason to buy a lightroom 🙂 everybody is so crazy about this effect

Madi Kanoute says:

so we buy a £300 camera, spend even more on expensive lenses then are expected to spend £100 for this editing software that I can do easily on my iphone (AfterLight has basically all the same features and I bought it for 60p) what a load of BS :/

Enjoyed your video.  Had never used the tone curve.  Will definitely be learning to use this.

Dee Zak says:

Thanks a lot for your video! It helped greatly! Plan on watching more!

I'm at about 9 minutes in, and her skin is a little bit green. Would reducing the green in the hilights with the curve do the trick?

Thanks a lot ! I have been searching for the tone curve tutorial…

what an awesome shot. you could make this a poster and sell it, but i personally think it looks amazing with less exposure!
