Tutorial: How to Remove Shadows in Lightroom

Tutorial: How to Remove Shadows in Lightroom

Have you ever wondered why some parts of your images look dark and shadowy even though you were shooting in bright light? This happens because light doesn’t hit all areas in your photo the same way, causing some parts to be darker than others, which then results in your images having a range of light and dark tones. However, these dark tones can be just shadows or blacks. The difference lies in the amount of brightness and details in them. Shadow areas might look dull, but there are details hidden under them, whereas in black areas, all details are lost. However, during post-production, you can retrieve any details hidden under shadows and also modify the contrast in your image. So if you want to know how to remove shadows in Lightroom and improve the quality of your pictures, this blog shows you how in 5 easy steps.
