How to Match the Exposures of Multiple Photos in Lightroom
If you’ve taken a bunch of photos in one day and want to create a series out of them, you’ll want to make sure they have a similar feel. You can use the same post-processing steps, use the same filters, and adjust them for consistency. The first thing you’ll want to do is adjust the exposure.
With Lightroom, every Photographer’s best friend , photographers can actually do this with the click of a button.
Open up all the photos you want to use in Lightroom. Open up one photo with the exposure settings you want to use as a guide. You can also adjust the exposure settings in Lightroom in the Quick Develop panel.
With your master photo open in Lightroom, select all the photos you want to adjust. If you’re using Adobe CC 2015, go to Photo > Develop Settings > Match Total Exposure (or use the keyboard shortcut Alt + Shift + Command/Control + M). If you’re using an earlier version of Lightroom, go to Settings > Match Total Exposure. Then just sit back and let Lightroom do all the work for you.
