How to edit in Lightroom Mobile | Split Toning

Today I’m going to show you how to use split
toning in Lightroom mobile. More specifically, how to get this teal and
orange look. But first, we need an intro. What’s up YouTube? I’m Oliver Sjostrom, and welcome to my channel,
where we talk all about photography, filmmaking, and travel. So, what is split toning? Split toning is a way to add colors to the
highlights and the shadows of your images. This is a great tool to use if you want to
have a consistent look throughout your body of work as a photographer. It’s also a great tool to use if you want
to keep a nice and clean Instagram feed, which today is a very important place to show off
your body of work to possible clients. At least for me, Instagram is the place where
many of my clients that I have today have first seen my work, so keeping a consistent
and nice Instagram feed is very important. But overall, using split toning will help
you get better looking photos. It’s a great tool to master as a photographer. A very popular look, and that I often use,
is a teal and orange split tone. There is actually a reason why these two colors
work so well together. They are contrasting colors in the color wheel. Teal and orange works especially well with
skin colors, and it’s often used both in movies, and by many photographers. All right, so let’s get into how to actually
achieve this look by using Lightroom mobile, but note that this is the exact same process
if you were using Lightroom from your computer. All right, so let’s jump into Lightroom mobile
and check out the image that we’re going to be working with today. This is an image that I took of my friend
Johan when we went surfing in Lombok earlier this year. All right. So, I’m going to start off by applying a preset
to this image. I’m going to use the Kon Tiki preset that
I have made specifically for Lightroom mobile. Free download is linked in the description
of this video. There you can also find the video that I made
on how to install and use presets in Lightroom mobile. Okay, moving on. I’m going to copy the settings of this preset,
except the split toning, because we’re going to make adjustments to those settings manually. All right, so let’s go back to the image of
Johan, and paste the settings. So here you can see that the preset in itself,
without the split toning, already did a pretty big impact on the image. But with split toning, it’s all about the
subtle changes that you make to the image. All right. Let’s go to the Effects tab, and there you
can find split toning in the top right hand corner. Here is your highlights, and your shadows,
and all the colors that you can apply to them. We’re going to give the highlights some teal
tones by moving the dot around the blue range of the color wheel. You can increase or decrease the saturation
by moving the dot up and down, but remember, less is more. The key here is to make subtle changes. All right, so moving on to the shadows. We’re going to put the dot around the orange
colors of the color wheel. And again, making changes to the saturation
by moving the dot up and down. The last thing that we’re going to use here
is the balance slider. If you move it to the right, the adjustments
that you’ve made to the highlights become more prominent. If you move it to the left, the adjustments
that you’ve made to the shadows would become more prominent. Find a spot that you are happy with, and you
are done. Here you can see the before and the after
of this image. That is how you use split toning in Lightroom
mobile. I hope that you found this video helpful. If you did, remember to give it a like. It really helps this channel out, and I really
do appreciate it. Subscribe for more videos. I try to post something every week. Check out the links in the description, where
you could download some free presets. I have some especially made for Lightroom
mobile. That’s it for this video, and I will see you
in the next one.
