Yesterday, I showed you how to get the look of a Tilt Shift Lens by using a preset you create in Lightroom. You can view that tutorial here.
Today, we are going to learn how to create a beautiful warm sun flare in your images without ever leaving Lightroom. I don't know about you, but I love the look of a warm sun drenched image. But the sun does not always cooperate. Or perhaps Mr. Sun was hiding behind a tree and you just couldn't seem to get the right angle to create that nice sun flare in camera. Well, no worries. You can create a beautiful realistic sun flare, during post production, right in Lightroom. And it will take you about 30 seconds to apply it.
Go from this…
To this without ever leaving Lightroom. And you can customize the sun flare to look exactly as you would like it to look.
And in this image I applied the Tilt Shift Lens effect we learned yesterday and the Sun Flare we learned today. Here is the before…
And here is the image after both effects have been applied.
To learn how easy this is to do watch this short tutorial.
Hope this tutorial was helpful. Have fun adding that warm sun drenched feel to some of your images. If you have anything else you want to learn give me a shout out and I will try and make it happen!
