In simple terms split toning is the process of adding different colours to the shadows and the highlights of an image. By experimenting with different Lightroom split toning combinations it's possible to create more emotive colour palettes or replicate various photographic effects. Split toning is perfect for vintage film processing, advanced black and white techniques, and also controlling colour when desaturating.
The basic steps include:
In my image above I have used cooler blue tones in the shadow areas, and then very soft warmer yellow tones in the highlights. Remember to keep the effects subtle, they always look better!

Inspirational illustrator and designer Magdiel Lopez has challenged himself to create a cool poster everyday. He’s already completed hundreds of colourful designs. Ranging from abstract people, fashion, modern geometric and on to sci-fi rainbow fantasy! The results are truly unreal. It’s a brilliant collection of work, and the design layouts show a masterful approach to both illustration and typography.
Creative agency Violaine & Jérémy have once again impressed us with some bold new branding for Mamie restaurant. The new Paris establishment is run by Jean Imbert and his inspirational Grandmother (who we suspect is responsible for his passion in food). The approach is done in the V&J signature style, where the typography takes a lead role in styling the overall design. The concept is supported by a range of full colour vintage illustrations, which depict hand drawn organic vegetables and ingredients.
