Lightroom is an intricate program full of numerous features — sometimes so many that it can be easy to miss out on a particularly useful tool that can make your editing life both easier and more efficient. This excellent video will show you one of those tools.
Coming to you from Anthony Morganti, this great video will show you how to use the Match Total Exposures tool in Lightroom. If you are someone who shoots a lot of images at a time (such as an events photographer) and you use one of your camera’s semi-automatic modes, such as aperture priority, you may find that your camera’s built-in metering isn’t quite perfect, and you’ll often have to spend time make minute exposure changes to multiple images of similar subjects or in a same location to get the exposure to match. This is where the Match Total Exposures tool comes into play. Simply adjust the exposure to how you’d like it in one image, then select the photos you want to match it. Lightroom will then take into account the shutter speed, aperture, and ISO setting of each photo and adjust the exposure accordingly to match. It’s a super useful tool to speed up your workflow. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
