Take this example of a portrait I took in Queens, New York. Figure 12.1 is the original, completely unretouched image. Straight out of the camera, it is a decent image the light is pretty, the colors are nice, and the subject's skin looks acceptable. However, I felt that this straight image was a bit typical, so I decided to add a bit of a vintage Hollywood feel. To do this, I utilized a Lightroom preset to warm up the tones, added a vignette, and pumped up the contrast. Figure 12.2 is more interesting and stylistic than the original. You can choose to add creative interpretations to your images, too. A Lightroom preset is a set of instructions of how to develop an image in Lightroom. Any changes you can make to the image, including white balance, black point, clarity, split toning and hundreds of other adjustments, can be combined to make a preset.

Without adjusting the recovery, I would lose all detail in the white of the dress, which is typically undesirable when working on wedding photography. I'll complete any of my more advanced adjustments (such as skin softening) in Photoshop and discuss them later. It is essential to get these basic adjustments taken care of up front because they affect the retouching and adjusting of the rest of the image.
Speaking purely of managing the organization of digital files, I prefer Lightroom to other studio management and image management programs. Lightroom is the tool I use to import my files, add key metadata, catalog them, and give a live image review session to clients. Figure 11.2 is a screen shot of my Lightroom gallery view during an editing session. Here I have edited my selections from the shoot to the top images rated three stars. From there I will continue to narrow my favorites to be edited in Photoshop. Lightroom is the workflow management software I use to make overall changes to the images and handle image selection. Lightroom is the workflow management software I use to make overall changes to the images and handle image selection. 1. Import the images into Lightroom. Rename and add metadata and keywords upon import. 4. Make additional selective adjustments to the top images in Lightroom.
