OK so I have a photo of a dog, stood on a wall with a bright undramatic sky behind.
I want to use the Grad filter to enhance the sky but take out the dogs head and shoulders from the adjustment, can I do this in LR?
With the graduated filter, use the highlights slider to bring the sky down.
Depending on the brightness of the dog, the adjustment shouldn't affect the dog too much, or may be not all.
If necessary, you can use the adjustment brush with auto mask checked to brighten the dog after applying the graduated filter.
Thank you kindly. Will try this later.
