W52 Project 2012 - Miikka Skaffari Music Photography

Oceano, 7/29/2012, Oakland Metro Operahouse. I created a lightroom preset to salvage shots that are from way too dark venues. I call this preset 'Smooth Palladium' as the tone mimics old palladium prints but also compensates for noise that is getting out of hand when shooting at ISO 3200. Additionally the preset compensates for a heavy red color tint on the originals which is unfortunately very common in smaller music venues. Maybe red lights are cheaper than any other color?
