Fearless Digital Photography

by Mikkel Aaland

The other day I was going over the galleys for my Lightroom book, and I came to a comment by Doug Nelson, my technical editor. He highlighted a step in a step-by-step procedure created by the photographer Maggie Hallahan. In Lightroom's Develop module Maggie had both boosted the Vibrance slider and decreased the Saturation slider. The procedure seemed totally non-intuitive, but Doug was impressed at how well it worked.

HI Mikkel,
Funnily enough, we've been discussing that very thing in the Adobe Lightroom group on Flickr.com:

While I like saturated landscape images, I prefer more muted tones in portraits and use this technique regularly.
