Make one fish two fish – should you turn a red fish blue fish? Is image editing cheating or artistry? Where do we draw the line? Each time we choose a lens to shoot with, a strobe to light with, or an edit in post, we alter reality. Is one alteration more valid than another? In Dirty Tricks III, we’ll delve into the dark arts with an eye towards both the ethical and aesthetic ramifications of image editing. Although we’ll start with Lightroom, be prepared to get your Photoshop on in a big, witchy way!

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.
