In this tutorial, I show you how to change eye color in Lightroom in a natural and realistic way.
While just adding some color mask or modifying the color hue may be enough if the eyes are relatively small in the picture, it will just not cut it for close up images, where the amount of details is greater and a sloppy job will be noticed immediately.
You will learn how to get a final result that really looks natural thanks in part to the use of advanced local adjustment options that you might not yet know.
