This week, we take a look at a fun but often neglected feature in our digital cameras: multiple exposures. From simple two-shot composites to creative 9 or 10-shot blends, the multiple exposure feature can deliver some really cool results. We’ll also discuss alternative approaches to creating multiple exposures, both in-camera and with Photoshop.
Lightroom Tip: Selective sharpening
By applying sharpening selectively in Lightroom, you can get professional results and minimize noise. This week, we discuss how to sharpen images selectively in Lightroom using the brush and gradient tools.
While Adobe Lightroom Classic is a powerful image editor and workflow management tool in its own right, there are certain things that it cannot do. To go beyond Lightroom, you need a pixel editor such as Adobe Photoshop. In this class, I will teach you how and why to utilize Adobe Photoshop alongside Lightroom. I will present a coherent Lightroom/Photoshop workflow strategy and take you through the features of Photoshop that every Lightroom user should know, including:
How to prepare images for Photoshop in the Lighroom Develop Module
I’ve been using Adobe Lightroom (Lightroom Classic) in earnest for about five years now, and my image library contains over 80,000 photos. Every now and then, I like to streamline my catalog to reduce clutter. A great way to do this is by using the “Refine Photos” command in Lightroom Classic:
I’ve gotten a lot of requests for more Lightroom training, so I’m pleased to offer my in-depth look at the Lightroom Develop Module. This is an online class, and participants will be able to ask questions. You’ll also receive a printable PDF notes package to go with the class.
This course is an in-depth look at all of the tools in Lightroom Classic CC’s develop module, and how to use them to process and enhance your images. In this live session, we’ll explore:

Did you know you can create Luminosity Masks in Lightroom?
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!
