In Lightroom -- desaturate your image to black and white... then scroll down on the right side menu to "split toning". That will allow you to add a tint to the shadows and highlights.

First, convert to grayscale. Then scroll down to the split-toning scetion. THere, you will find four slider, two for the shadows and two for the highlights. The top one for each will adjust the color. The bottom one for each will adjust the saturations. Sliding only the top one will do nothing...you need to make sure to slide the saturation up before you start changing the hue. I usually slide the saturation for both up to 30 so that I can see the colors to select the appropriate hues, then I adjust the saturation sliders back down or up to get the look I want. Does that help?

#2 - this is a fav, did you happen to catch them holding one another in the same spot...i bet that would be good too if you have one.

#3 - I love this one as well, it's a shot that I strive to get everytime!

Oh yeah, your 5D sucks...I think you need to sell it to me for $500.00....hehehehe.

You are right, that would be a nice shot. I did have them holding each other, but not silhouetted like that. :(

And thanks for the offer, but I think I'll keep it. :D

Nice series. Good composition. Great Job!

I wouldn't think your client would like #4, however. It makes her look a little, um, wide in the chassis. Perhaps have her turn slightly to him and it will help! Otherwise, really nice stuff! :D

You're right, it does, but it also shows off her waistline, which that shirt wasn't showing from the other angle, so I went with it. I am always afraid to give too much direction to people because I don't want them to get stiff and un-natural looking. Any suggestions on how to keep them natural while posing them?

I`d love #3 more if it was just a bit straighter.

I can definitely understand that. I took some slightly less tilted shots, but this was the one that popped for me. I do love tilt, but I understand it's not for everyone nor every situation.

on the right handside under tonal control in lightroom, I have these sliders: exposure, recovery,fill light,blacks,brightnes​s,contrast,clarity and vibrance..

so wich are those four sliders you are referring to?
forgive my dumpness but I still didn't get it :oops:

I think you're still on the "library" tab, go to the "develop" tab and then scroll the right hand colomn down to "split toning".

How about a simple method.... Reset to the original photo, go to the "library" tab, choose "saved presets" then select the sepia option, go back to the "develop" tab and play around with the tones again.

The good thing with lightroom is that it's non destructive, so you can play around for ages without messing up the original. Experiment and you'll get exactly what you want eventually.

thanks for the tip but I wanted to maybe get a clue about the exact settings that the original shooter used here for that no2 shot:)

thanks all again:)

I shot it at ISO 800, 1/125 sec, f/ 8.0 at 33 mm and my focus point was on the couple. Is that what info you were looking for?
