How to use Split Toning on Lightroom

We usually go through all the editing possibilities when working with Lightroom. But I always see people forgetting to work with one of the most significant adjustments to the program. The split toning.

The split toning tab allows you to use a predominant color for the light areas of your images and another color for the dark areas, so you can create very interesting effects, or even create a purposeful color cast.

This is a little used adjustment in Lightroom because most of the time people have no idea what it does. And to clarify your future there in the video above I explain How to use Split Toning in Lightroom and also show what can be done with it to help create the desired mood in your photos.

We talked a while ago about how to do Film Look editing on Lightroom and there I used split toning to give that orange and green face in specific areas of mine, you can see this post here . But that is not the only option for working with this tool.
