Using the Adjustment Brush in Lightroom 3 (Part 2)

I have already done a video about the adjustment brush, but I just finished working on an engagement session, where I used the adjustment brush to do something you would think you need to go into Photoshop to do. So I thought I would pass it along to you.

It always amazes me how far we’ve come. I feel like my grandfather who talked about growing up without cars and how he remembered the very first crank ford in town. Well, I remember when instant review was a Polaroid (and not an iPhone Polaroid app). I remember retouching images with a brush and some spot tone and a q-tip with bleach. I remember when Adobe programs didn’t even recognize RAW files. And now, I am free to do almost everything I need to do to an image without ever leaving the RAW format, without touching a physical negative and without ever going into the darkroom. My how things have changed… and no matter how nostalgic I may get, I do NOT want to go back! Incidentally, neither did my grandfather.
