About This Class

In this class, you will learn how to edit photos that are well exposed but due to light, or position, faces of people are in the shadows.

When you take photos, sometimes due to circumstances, people's faces are in the shadow. In travel photos, this may be due to timing, and location of the sun in relation to the landscape.


You may also not have time to set your camera to get the right settings for example in a party.

With this class, you will be able to salvage photos you think were no good because you can't see the faces of people.

This class is Part 2 of a series where you will learn how to use Lightzone.

Part 1 "Introduction To Lightzone Photo Editor - Photo Editing For Absolute Beginners". The topics in the first class go over downloading, installing, and some basic cropping with Lightzone.

Part 3. Create Breath Taking Landscape with LightZone
