Shadow/Highlight workflow - A Quick Tutorial by Mathias Vejerslev

Here's a tip on using the Shadow / Highlight feature of Photoshop. I'll describe my typical established workflow using this tool, in order to help others using it.

Shadow / Highlight is in a special category of tools, based on light zones in your image. You can use it to increase or decrease contrast, or indeed both in one go.
