Just want to say “Congratulations!” for my good friends Diana and Silviu Gănceanu for their wedding a couple of months ago. I wish them all the best!
I was fortunate to be their photographer for the event (which took place in Focsani, Romania) and want to share some of my favorite images of them:
A lot of kissing going on, I can tell you that!

This article talks about using (but not limited to) the “Split Toning” controls in Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom for digital color images, without going through the black and white version. It is not related to the classic darkroom techniques for film photography.
Normally, split toning is the process of taking a black and white image and adding different color tints to the highlights and shadows. In Adobe Lightroom, the split toning controls could also be considered an extension of the HSL controls, but I find it just as powerful when working directly on color images as well.
Many photographers use abnormal white-balance settings as a means of creatively enhancing their images. Making a scene more warm or cold can have a great impact on the way it is perceived. Sure, I’m not talking about most stock photography genres, editorial uses or certain types of shots for advertising. Cross-processing can most widely be found in creative personal portfolios and photo communities and it can really help images stand-out from the crowd, because of the way they are perceived.
Color theory is an important part of photography and design of any form, and it is something that every photographer should train themselves to know. But have you ever considered that besides using powerful colors as main subjects in your images, you could also be inducing various moods just by discretely adding color casts to the highlights or shadows?
