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
and for comparison here is the very disappointing shot straight out of camera
