The idea behind this technique is that sometimes our scenery doesn’t cooperate. Most of us don’t have unlimited time and budgets to keep reshooting the same place when the light is perfect. So we get what we get when it comes to light. But who’s to say we can’t help the photo out a little after the fact, to help create the scene we hoped for in the first place 🙂
The tutorial below concentrates on Lightroom. But Photoshop’s Camera Raw has the same exact tool. And ON1 Photo also has a similar tool called the Masking Bug and it does the same thing as the Radial Filter. So whichever program you use, this technique can help out.
Have a good one! 🙂
