Lightroom 5 has some very handy features. If you have not used it, you should give it a try. You can use the Adjustment Brush to alter specific parts of the image, such as lightening and darkening backgrounds and other little tweaks.
This video provides an example of how this image of Whistler can be made to look different simply by using the adjustment brush to darken the background. Anyway,this was just to illustrate the kind of things you can do with the Adjustment Brush.
Thanks for watching
More videos coming later next week!
