Good Morning Everybody,

Hey gang, thanks for letting me move our Technique Tuesday episode to Wednesday. With the short notice on our webcast announcement, I just didn't want to postpone it to today. Anyway, it's a really fun tutorial today, so let's get right to it!
You Look Marvelous: Fantastic Facial Enhancement In Lightroom 3
I was playing with the adjustment brush trying to figure out a way to locally retouch and enhance parts of the subject's face. I was working with the clarity and sharpness slider even combining both of them to see what kind of result I could obtain.
I was reasonably happy with the result but was having difficulty applying the effect as accurately as I wanted. That's when I had my "eureka moment." Somehow the exposure slider got moved very far to the left and the brush application, all of a sudden, got very weird. I had these black splotches all over my image! But, I could accurately see where I was painting. When I returned the Exposure slider back to normal what remained was my very accurate facial enhancement to my subject - very cool.
Why not hit the PLAY button below to see exactly what I'm talking about. The second part of the tutorial also shows you a "Plan B” to get the same great result. You're going to like this one. Enjoy!
Right now I've got to get moving. I have one of my favorite clients stopping by to fine tune the album selection for her son's Wedding. It was a fantastic party and it will be a blast to design the albums. The wedding took place in Vail, Colorado - it will be nice to catch up with mom this afternoon.
Everybody have a great time with everybody that comes into your life today. I remember a piece of advice I heard many years ago, "The best way to have a great day yourself is to help someone else have a great day too."
Hey everybody, see ya’ tomorrow!
