In this tutorial I demonstrate the use of Graduated Filters in Lightroom to not only modify tone, but also colour temperature.
As the subject brightness range (SBR) is not particularly high at the time of day that I captured theses images, I did not need to use a graduated filter in fron of the camera lens to prevent clipping or overexposure of the sky.
Applying graduated filters in post-production has many advantages as you will see in the movie. In some instances, where the subject brightness range is high, you may still prefer to use a graduated filter in front of the camera lens. With my full-frame Sony sensors I find that I just need to exposure for the sky and restore the shadows in post-production editing.
