Editing black & darker skin tones in Lightroom

Not all skin tones are equal in terms of editing.

What works for light skin, might not work for dark skin, so it's important to know how to compensate your editing with different methods.

Editing dark skin is very similar to editing lighter skin tones, but there are a few things to keep in mind so that those beautiful brown tones don't get over-edited and change their natural color.

In this video tutorial, we will cover how to edit dark skin in Lightroom and compensate for any skin color changes when presets or hand edits are applied.

There are 2 different ways that you will see to help tone down any orange color that your editing might bring out & how to fix it easily.

 

All of our presets were created with versatility in mind, but sometimes they will need to be adjusted - on any type of skin color.

Take a look at the collections that are demonstrated in this video for all of your portrait editing need: Life in Color & Recollections.
