Alright guys, welcome to our first tutorial where we are going to start on our little journey of editing and developing in Lightroom.

In this Lightroom video tutorial, we are going to focus on techniques to color correct portraits. The main priority when correcting portrait images is really nailing the correct skin tones of your subject. So, we will be teaching you various techniques on adjusting temperature and tint, smoothing highlights and details, and more in order to get our skin tones looking nice and natural.

After we correct each image, we are going to save our develop settings for each corrected image to a Snapshot. That way we can constantly refer back to each develop style for our images as we work through this series.

Since we are working through 4 examples, we are going to move fairly quick. I want the images corrected, but I am not too worried about getting them 100% perfect as we are going to be revisiting them in future tutorials as we get to touching up and artistic editing videos. So, for now, focus more on the technique, get your images 90% - 95% completed, then move to the next image.

Enjoy guys!
