In this session, you’ll view a detailed step-by-step instruction on how to view black and white photography the right way by being able to visualize colors and gray tones together. After that, we’ll dive deep into black and white photography editing to show you how to create deeper contrasts and add color luminance to specific sections of your photos.
Did you know that every photograph you take has stored information that will tell you exactly what settings you were using? This is called metadata. Maybe the most important part of metadata is the lens profile. In this session, you’ll learn creative ways to use the lens profile correction tool in Lightroom for better image results.
If there is one under-utilized tool in Lightroom for outdoor photography, it’s the radial filter. This very special tool helps you bring more attention to your subject matter. In this session, you’ll see three different ways you can use the radial filter for more dynamic subjects.
Did you know that you can use masking in Lightroom? This technique was once only available in Photoshop, but now there's a powerful version available in Lightroom. In this session, learn how to use range masking specifically for light and luminance.
Just like in the previous session, we are going to be using range masking to make powerful adjustments to our photos. However, in this session, we are going to be using range masking to select very specific colors that we want to enhance. This is an especially powerful tool to use for sunrise and sunset photography!
Stylizing your photographs can be an effective way to create consistency in your images. The easiest way to be consistent with style is with split toning. In this session, we’ll show you how to use split toning in Lightroom to adjust your images with complimentary tones already present in the photo.
It seems like everyone is selling their own Lightroom presets. While they do speed up the editing process, they rarely match the light and situation of your photos. To fix this, you can actually create your own user presets for more consistent preset fits.
