Today we start a new tutorial working on a tricky image with strong shadows and highlights. We use Lightroom first to recover some detail on those areas and then we do a black and white mix to bring out interesting detail throughout. Add in some dodging and burning, vignette and an interesting split tone and we'll be all finished. This tutorial majors heavily on the decision making process with an image. I talk a lot about what I'm trying to achieve with the picture and how I'm going to get there.
