Recre­ate the clas­sic ana­logue look of blown-out high­lights and de­sat­u­rated colours

The De­velop mod­ule’s Ba­sic panel is de­signed to help you re­veal an im­age’s miss­ing tonal de­tails by in­de­pen­dently tar­get­ing and ad­just­ing High­lights, Shad­ows, Whites and Blacks. This en­ables you to lighten or darken prob­lem­atic ar­eas with­out chang­ing cor­rectly ex­posed ones. Light­room’s Tone Curve panel pro­vides you with an ad­di­tional and ef­fec­tive way to tar­get and tweak spe­cific tones, and you can com­bine the con­trols in the Ba­sic and Tone Curve pan­els to solve any tone-re­lated prob­lems.

These two sets of tone-edit­ing tools can also be used in cre­ative ways to mimic clas­sic pro­cess­ing tech­niques. In tra­di­tional chem­i­cal dark­rooms, pho­tog­ra­phers could pro­duce strik­ing and dra­matic-look­ing re­sults by al­ter­ing the way they de­vel­oped their neg­a­tives. The bleach by­pass process cre­ated de­lib­er­ately clipped blacks, blown-out high­lights and de­sat­u­rated colours, and we can use the Tone Curve panel to mimic this ana­logue pro­cess­ing tech­nique to cre­ate a stylised fash­ion mag­a­zine-style por­trait.
