Lesson 5. Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, Santa Fe, New Mexico

All right, you’re four lessons into the system and by now you’re starting to see a pattern emerge on how this all works. I do want to note that while you must start with Camera Raw as your first step, and you should finish with sharpening as your last, if you put a Curves adjustment before a Shadow/Highlight adjustment (or vice versa), it won’t kill the photo correction process, so don’t sweat that too much. Just keep doin’ what you’re doin’ for now. This shot was taken at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church during a shoot while I was teaching at the Santa Fe Workshops in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
