Let’s Make Really Spooky Photo Using Lightroom Techniques!

Lightroom has many hidden gems, and Colour Grading, previously known as Split Toning, is one.

What is the Color Grading/Split Toning?

Color Grading is one of those Advanced Lightroom Techniques. In short, Color Grading allows you to assign different colour tones to Midtones, Highlights and Shadows. This unique Lightroom technique can remove the colour cast, but I used it to modify highlights and shadows in this image. This little adjustment changed the whole photograph to a fantastic spooky photo!

Here is the Original Picture:
