One of Lightroom’s best features for working with skies in your photos is the Graduated Filter. It’s a great way to realistically tame a bright sky without actually using a glass filter on your lens in the field. One of the problems with the Grad filter though (whether you use a real filter or the one in Lightroom), is that it tends to darken anything that goes above your horizon line (like trees or mountains). Well, in this week’s video I’ll walk you through one of the best tips I’ve found with the Grad Filter to help make those skies look great and bring out the detail in anything the filter may have inadvertently darkened. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
