Enhancing Portraits and Photos Using Adobe Lightroom

In this video tutorial using the Adobe Lightroom, I will go over how I edit a portrait and explain several advanced techniques to make your photos stand out!!  We will go over the basic crop, and then advanced spot removal techniques that the Pros use. I will also show you how to enhance the eyes using the adjustment brush and a few other things thrown in here and there. I kept this video relatively short as I notice most people get bored after about 10 minutes or so, including myself!!

Adobe Lightroom – Enhancing Portraits and Photos

Be sure select the 720P quality option once the tutorial video starts playing!! You can then go full screen and it looks good 😉

Closing Remarks

As you can see by these few images and the video tutorial, Lightroom 4 is pretty powerful!! Converting to BW is also awesome and I use it daily.

I’ve been using Lightroom now since it’s inception and I must say it really is the best option in my opinion for organizing all your photos in a database fashion, and for the fastest workflow possible. There are other programs out their that do the job, but they don’t do it as well. Their is a reason why most Pro’s use Lightroom 😉

Please feel to ask questions if you have any or request other tutorials if your interested in more!!
Best,
Jay
