Hi All. I came across this Chap some time ago and found him to be very helpful in my work flow. He is a photographer from France and is currently touring the US. Take a look at one of his pod casts at the following link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GoO9s3awIpQ&feature=em-subs_digest

If like like his stile he has fifty or so free pod casts on Utube. You can also subscribe to his channel for a more in depth tutorial.
Hope you find this helpful.
PLEASE COME BACK AND LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU ALL THINK OF SERGE'S TUTORIALS.:biggrin:

PS- He is offering a 40% discount for a couple of days only on his lightroom portrait presents.:eek:

Kindest regards.
Mike

I also discovered Serge on Youtube a few months ago. Since I'm mainly interested in landscape photography, I watched some of his Lightroom videos that address that kind of photography.

An interesting tip of his is zeroing out the highlight slider, then max'ing out the shadows slider to establish a starting for the rest of the post-processing. Yes, it flattens the image, but I find that it provides a good starting point. He then brings back the highlights and shadows mostly thru use of the Whites and Blacks sliders.

I've used this technique and like the results.


Kindest regards.
