How to find your creative style with “Split Toning”

In my opinion, the most underrated tool of Lightroom is “Separate Tinting”. Meanwhile, this is not only a great opportunity to correct many problems in a photograph, but also a great way to develop your own creative style of image processing.
If you are not familiar with “Separate toning”, then its essence is the following – you apply a specific shade separately to the shadows and lights of the picture in order to get the separation of colors without changing the brightness.

HOW TO USE THE NATURAL FRAMING TO IMPROVE PHOTOS

To make more interesting and beautiful photos, there are certain key techniques of composition. One of the widely known is natural framing. But, like all the rules and tips, requires careful and thoughtful application. Using such framing correctly, you can create extremely impressive and elegant images.

INTERVIEW WITH PHOTO CLASSIC: HENRI CARTIER-BRESSON

Henri Cartier-Bresson: For me, photography is the simultaneous recognition of the significance of an event, as well as the determination of its exact form in a split second, which gives this event a special expressiveness. I believe that a thinking person, having known himself, at the same time discovers the world around him, which can change him, and which he himself can influence. There must be a balance between the inner world of a person and the outside world. As a result of constant influence on each other, these two worlds will merge into one. And it is this one world that is worth revealing (in the photo).
