How to Fix Blemishes and Reduce Wrinkles in Lightroom

How to Fix Blemishes and Reduce Wrinkles in Lightroom

by

A common question we get in the free webinars and at the help desk is how to fix blemishes without taking the image to Photoshop. Many Lightroom users do not realize how useful the "spot removal tool" can be for fixing blemishes such as scratches, food particles, pimples, etc. This tool continues to be improved with each Lightroom release and really can handle most of your healing and cloning needs. The spot removal tool is used to remove unwanted objects or blemishes via one of two modes:the clone mode or heal mode. The clone mode is best for hiding unwanted...

3 Ways to Correct White Balance in Lightroom

3 Ways to Correct White Balance in Lightroom

by

Colors. Temperatures. Tints. All things "white balance." It can all get so confusing and take what was a fun activity and turn it into a frustrating one. This tutorial will take some of the frustration away by teaching you how to quickly and easily fix white balance in Lightroom. White balance is the color temperature of an image, as it was captured by your camera. Why isn't the white balance perfect every time? Your camera can't read the color of light like it can the strength of light. It needs YOU to tell it what to do, what the like...

How to Correct Skin Tones in Lightroom

by

One of the editing steps that many people find the most challenging when editing portraits is how to make skin tones more accurate to the subject and pleasing to the viewer. It is important to mention that skin tones is not a simple subject because much of the "tone" comes from the camera and photographer, but only the editing of skin tones will be discussed in this tutorial.

Why Using a Makeup Artist Might Mean Better Sales

Why Using a Makeup Artist Might Mean Better Sales

We all have those rare photos of ourselves where we look at them and can’t help but think Man, I look good! Maybe it’s our outfit, the way our hair is laying just so, or perhaps even a perfect culmination of lighting and the right angle. It really doesn’t matter if the photo was taken by a professional, or by a friend’s iPhone in a dark club… it’s priceless to us. Because we all really just want to know we look good once in a while. For me, that photo is really anything taken on my wedding day. It was...

Discovering Your Newborn Lifestyle Photography

Discovering Your Newborn Lifestyle Photography

by

Seven pounds and twenty inches.  A tuft of dark hair.  Tiny fingers and even tinier toes.  I am sure you can imagine the sweetness of a newborn baby. Capturing those small details and freezing them in time is the joy of a photographer.  You really cannot beat having a fresh baby as your subject.  I know newborn sessions are one of my favorites.  However, that didn't come overnight or without a TON of trial and error.   I believe there are two camps of newborn photographers.  There are the ones who are talented with using props, backdrops, and posing a...

A Simple Edit with Brushes and Lightroom Presets

A Simple Edit with Brushes and Lightroom Presets

Sometimes your photo doesn’t need a lot of editing to look it’s best—just a few little tweaks instead. Here is a photo that just needed a few minutes in Lightroom to have it looking sweet. Watch the video below or follow along with the tutorial below. Step 1 I almost always start by adjusting my white balance and exposure.  In this shot, both those things looked really good, so I chose not to do anything. I did decrease the blacks a bit to give a bit more contrast. Step 2 Using the “Eye Color Blue” brush from the Perfect Portrait...
