Family portrait - PP advice please
Mar 13, 2010

Hi Guys,

I took this portrait of my family tonight and have had a play in lightroom but it's still lacking some punch imho - please could you offer advice on what to adjust to give it a bit more bite ?

I've increased exposure and fill light as well as adding some darks but still feel it might be a bit underexposed, i'm always wary of not taking it too light so as not to lose the details.

Is it easy in LR to clone out the chair edge and darker wall area ?

Thanks in advance,
Mike.
