Creating Selection Masks & Luminosity Masks in Lightroom

Live Online Lightroom Training

When: Thursday, October 11th 7pm Eastern Time (4pm Pacific)
Where: Live Online Class via GoToMeeting

Did you know you can create Luminosity Masks in Lightroom?
Advanced Lightroom Training with Jason Odell
Discover the power of selection masks in Lightroom and learn to create luminosity masks, too!

Adobe continues to add power and funtcionality to Lightroom Classic CC. In this online class (live via GoToMeeting), I’ll be presenting an in-depth look at the local selection (Masking) tools that Lightroom Classic CC offers to photographers. We use selection tools to make adjustments to specific areas of our images, such as a sky or a foreground object. Selective adjustments allow you to fix or enhance specific areas in your image without impacting the rest of your image. The new tools in Lightroom Classic CC offer some tremendously powerful features (like Luminosity Masking) that I can’t wait to show you!

TOPICS INCLUDE

  • Using the three local adjustment tools (Brush/Linear Gradient/Radial Gradient)
  • How to make precise selections with the auto-masking brush
  • Modifying gradients with brushes
  • How to visualize your selection masks in Lightroom
  • How to create a “Select All” mask
  • How to create Luminosity Masks in Lightroom
  • Practical examples of local adjustments in photo editing

Birds In Flight Photo Workshop: San Diego

Southern California Bird Photography Workshop

February 10-14, 2019
San Diego, CA

Birds in Flight Photo Workshop
Master photographing birds in flight with Jason Odell February 10-14, 2019

Join me in San Diego, California to immerse yourself in the art of bird photography. This exclusive instructional photo safari is limited to eight (8) participants for a personal experience that you can’t get from the big tours. I offer “ask me anything” instruction during the safari to ensure you’re getting the best quality images. Because of the small group size, I’m able to offer a more intimate instructional style that allows each participant to get the knowledge they need to succeed.

This workshop is perfect for photographers who wish to capture portraits of birds and wildlife, plus hone their skills on photographing birds in flight. We will have the opportunity to photograph numerous species, including pelicans, cormorants, gulls, and terns. We will also likely encounter sea lions and other wildlife on the beaches, and have the opportunity to get some nice sunsets and environmental shots.

Each day, we will download and process our images together as a group, get critiques, and learn new techniques to make your photos into fine-art masterpieces. I will work with you to capture and process the best possible images into beautiful finished products.
