Lester was an early adopter of digital photography, but is still pleased to assist film photographers based on his years of experience with that lovely (old) medium. His knowledge of state-of-the-art digital imaging is extensive, working with both Macs and PCs, numerous digital cameras, and with a long list of software, including Photoshop, Lightroom, and Mac Photo.

Lester is a major producer of stock photography; creating images for the largest stock photo agencies in the world. His subject matter ranges from landscapes to cityscapes, flowers to lasers, architecture to surgery.

This is Part IV of a four-part Lightroom tutorial.

In this Zoom presentation Lester will demonstrate advanced features of Lighroom: sophisticated uses of the Brush tool for working on just parts of an image (multiple brushes, overlapping brushes, brush presets);  the Gradient and Radial Filters for subtly adding tapered effects to an image;  spotting and cloning;  use of the Tone Curve for special effects;  Noise Reduction and Sharpening;  Split Toning in B&W;  adding Vignettes;  adding Grain (to pretend you shot with film).

Lester will send all participants extensive notes from his presentation after class.
