This tutorial guides you through the process of taking a studio portrait and applying an extreme low key photography effect to it. The effect uses a range of Lightroom’s tools, including: The Adjust Brush, Graduated Filter, Clarity, Burn Effect, Tone Adjustment and Effects panels to create an eye catching, extreme image that is perfect for band promo photographs.

This effect works brilliantly on men and emphasizes the skin tone and detail, and is especially effective on hair and beards or extreme skin textures.
