RC Concepcion went over the tricks and techniques in both Lightroom and Photoshop to get the very best out of your image.
We learned how to get the most out of our images from Camera Raw and the Develop module in Lightroom.
Once we got the best out of our RAW file, RC took us through tried and true techniques in sharpening, masking, correction, and special effects to really make those images pop.
