Simple Lightroom Trick For Better-Looking Skies

Please don’t hate me because this is so easy, but it really does make a big difference. It’s a trick I’ve been using for years, and I think you’ll dig it.

Come with me to Paris!

This June I’m doing a hands-on travel photography workshop in incredible Paris, France and I want you to come (well, we can only host 12-people total, you can’t all come or it would be awkward). The details are over on my blog today at scottkelby.com – hope you can check it out because it’s going to be (wait for it…wait for it…) epic! I mean, “Le Epic” (that’s made-up French, which is my specialty).

Here’s to an awesome weekend, and I hope to see some you next week out at the WPPI Conference in freezing Las Vegas (yes, it snowed there twice this week). Should be totally chill (see what I did there?).

Thanks,

Scott

    • Another easy way to bring up skies is to use the “magic tool” in the HSL panel. Click on Luminance and then use the tool to drag down on the sky. It will darken the sky and look quite natural. This works best in a photo where there are not a lot of other blue areas (e.g. water), but is great for landscapes with fields or mountains and washed out skies.
