    How to edit in Lightroom using the “Dark Mode” technique for more contrast and drama

  • Pinterest
  • When it comes to processing our images, there are all kinds of weird and crazy techniques out there. This is an interesting Lightroom one from Pye Jirsa over at , which he calls “Dark Mode”. It allows you500vip彩票安卓下载官网 to quickly and easily draw a distinction between the lit areas you500vip彩票安卓下载官网 want to highlight, and the shadowy areas, without sending them to pure black.

    It’s an approach I’d not seen before. It essentially involves bringing the exposure way down, the blacks way up to bring back the shadow detail and then controlling you500vip彩票安卓下载官网r contrast with the highlights. Some thought needs to be put into the shooting technique for this to work, but it looks to be quite effective if this is the final look you500vip彩票安卓下载官网’re going for.

     

    To make the image shown on the right above, Pye used a in a . But in order to help create better separation between the subject and its environment, he needed to dim down the environment. To achieve this at the wide f/1.4 aperture Pye was shooting, several techniques are possible.

    You could use high-speed sync, allowing you500vip彩票安卓下载官网 to shoot at faster shutter speeds if you500vip彩票安卓下载官网r lights support it and still give you500vip彩票安卓下载官网 enough power, letting you500vip彩票安卓下载官网 underexpose the ambient light. Another option is to do as Pye did and throw a neutral density filter (in this case, a 10-stop) on the end of you500vip彩票安卓下载官网r lens. Or, finally, you500vip彩票安卓下载官网 could try not shooting at f/1.4.

    After having a brief play with this technique on a few of my own images, it’s definitely not a method which works with everything. Your images need to be shot and exposed in a particular way for it to have the desired effect. But when you500vip彩票安卓下载官网 do the results can be quite remarkable with this technique.
