Course Description

If there’s one thing you could do right now to greatly improve the quality of your portfolio, it would be to learn how to properly use the tonal and presence sliders in Lightroom (or ACR)….hands-down. These tools directly enhance the tone, detail, and contrast…which as you probably know, make up the structure of your photographs.

This is why I wanted to create this premium course…because it will grant you absolute clarity on two very important things:

1. What the tone and presence sliders do exactly, and
2. a simple workflow to determine exactly which sliders to use on an image, and at what strength.

The result? A quicker road to higher quality photographs.
