I have learned to like this style and it is so easy to make. I use Adobe LR Classic to import color jpeg images from my cameras and process them. I first use Adobe monochrome and auto tone and then adjust them accordingly. I pull back the exposure to darken them and then I increase the whites and decrease the blacks. Depending on the colors of the scene I might then selectively increase or decrease a color’s effect. I also might use the tone curve to darken something in the background. I then finish with a darkened vignette.
