Light is color. Light is dimension. Light is texture. Light is contrast. Light is composition. Light is impact. Light is control. Light rocks! Understanding how to sculpt your image with light is the ultimate power tool for photo editing. In this session we’ll look at Erin’s favorite techniques for razzling a little dazzle into your R G and B. Let it shine!

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.
