About This Tutorial:

   As a continuing part of my video tutorials on using Adobe Lightroom. I keep striving to come up with simple yet, creative tutorials for everyone. In this video tutorial I cover more on using dodge & burn to give creative effects in ones photo.

   The photo seen above was taken with the Canon EOS 70D using the older Canon EF 75-300mm Mark III lens. The settings used was ISO 250, f/5.0 and 1/320sec @ 230mm. I used ISO 250 to help increase the shutter speed to assist in getting sharper photo in the case of wind causing movement in the flowers and also due to the effective focal length used (368mm). Even though the effective focal length was more then the shutter speed, I was taking this photo at only a few feet and being very careful. I used aperture of f/5 due to that being the maximum aperture available to me when I shot this at 230mm.
