Big thanks to Gene for letting me come and hangout with all you Lightroom lovers over here. Word is that you are here to get Lightroom Secrets? Well I want to share with you my favorite Lightroom feature: The Targeted Adjustment Tool. Now, I’m assuming that some of you have heard about it and some not at all. For this tutorial I am going to focus on my favorite use for this tool.
A mystery to many beginners in photography is mastering the technique of backlighting. Having beautiful evening sun in the background and your subject all outlined in it can be beautiful! But it’s not easy to expose for that. And while backlighting is essential to get right in camera (spot metering!), there is almost no way around some post processing…so the Targeted Adjustment Tool can help you do just that!
