As underwater photographers, we’re always waging war against the strongest light we know – the sun, shining through the strongest blue filter we have – the water. Our valiant strobes are the warriors in a battle to restore warm color to our images, but unfortunately, most of us do an inconsistent, if not outright crappy job of using them to light our photos. This session of GoAskErin Live will show you how to harness the mad powers of Lightroom to ban the cyan in post.
• Where to Begin and Why
• Camera Profiles
• White Balance in the Basic Panel
• The HSL panel – Special recipes (and one mantra) for underwater shooters
• OMG the Adjustment Brush and Filters

In Lightroom Classic Version 11 and Later, Adobe introduced a new way to make selections and masks in the Lightroom Develop Module. If you’re using Lightroom Classic 11 or Later, we recommend purchasing New Masking Magic in Lightroom Classic 11 in addition to this product to get up to speed on the new masking tools.
