In this Lightroom tutorial, we’ll use a bunch of the features in Lightroom to quickly create a cinematic movie still-like image by flattening the tones in the image to increase the dynamic range and then selectively add contrast back into the image. We’ll also use a cinematic 2.39:1 crop to give the photo a real wide screen look. As a bonus, we’ll also create a creamy black and white shot at the very end of the tutorial as well. Check out the whole video and I hope that you love it!
