filters and tonal adjustments in order to achieve a very realistic lightning
effect that will look a little bit different every time you attempt it.

The Shadow/Hightlight Tool:

what if you only need to brighten up a small portion of an image, perhaps
where there are some dark shadows? In this tutorial, trainer
Craig Campbell will show you how to use Photoshop’s Shadow/Highlight tool to
bring out the shadows and calm down the highlights all in one simple step.

framed picture straight-on, you’ve probably noticed that it’s impossible to
do so without planting a large reflection of the flash right in the center
of the picture. In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to avoid that unwanted
reflection by taking the picture from an angle and then adjusting the
picture using perspective cropping.
