Amplifies the Musical Atmosphere
Dramatic Tones. You do not have to lose subtle tones when taking pictures in dim settings. Night Music Time makes sure of that. Even dark areas can serve as accents because of this preset; the dark stage now has some warm magenta tones, while highlights — usually light streaks — take on a bluish hue. Note, too, the brownish shadows that give much more depth and definition.
Look at the above After photo and notice how much more captivating it has become. The guitarist is finally illuminated. You get to appreciate more of his instrument and bold look. With its heightened appeal, you can even use the photo now as an album cover.
Brightens with Adjustments Light and Tone
Brightened Performance. The preset applies several adjustments to light and tone. The combination of these fully directs the spotlight to the musician. You can get a soft bright stage with this preset, too.
Night Music Time adds more light to the image by slightly increasing exposure. It then boosts contrast to make sure that the tones remain crisp, not washed out. Then, for a balanced and textured look, it softens highlights and lightens shadows.
To further brighten the image, the preset adds brilliance to black and white areas. This goes well with the mentioned enhancements in tone. In the above photo, see how the musician’s face is more illuminated; you get to see more of his facial features and expression. These visual cues are, after all, important to any concert experience.
Produces Deep and Vibrant Hues
Draws Out Texture and Detail
Finally, as its finishing touch, Night Music Time reduces noise and adds some slight vignetting. Notice how you can now see more of the textures, and how the vignette dramatically frames the performer.
