Split toning

Day 3 of this week’s Digital Photo School at home challenge is split toning.  When I read up on the sort of photos that could be “rescued” using split toning I immediately thought of my photos from our visit a few years ago to Mount Yassar in Vanuatu.

Split toning was another lightroom technique that I had never really used before

It was a challenging environment to take photos (we were in the clouds, and the landscape was very monochromatic and dusty).  I didn’t really get any shots that I was happy with – even as holiday snaps.

Split toning did work to lift the photo – without losing the sense of just how desolate it is
