Color can often drive the story of an image, and the story drives the viewer’s eye. In this eight-hour retouching tutorial, Justin takes you from RAW processing, the story, cleanup, and all the way to export.
Developing an efficient color grading RAW workflow is the basis of this tutorial to give photographers and retouchers the tools to explore color at the RAW level. Learn how he utilizes Adobe Lightroom’s features, tools, and RAW engine processor.
