How to edit a light painting photo FAST using LIGHTOOM

Lightroom edit of our Night Photography Workshop – Roundhay Park, Leeds

Here’s a shot from our light painting workshop in Leeds – a small but perfectly formed group of intrepid photographers gathered to paint the park red, blue, green and any other colour we had in the bag.

This photo had 3 of us with torches – blue to the left, red behind, and yellow to the right.

Luckily we had perfect skies – a decent wind with sparse clouds blowing past, this gives us a great sense of movement and they leave their trail over the sky.

The settings were :-

  • ISO 400
  • F4
  • 30 seconds

Here’s a video showing the end-to-end edit of the photo, lots of cool tips too.
