Dodge and Burn
You can use the brush tool to wash over brighter areas or areas you want to highlight to add backlight. To do this, open the brush tool and click on it. Double click on effect to reset all the brush settings to zero.
We suggest making sure that the brush isn’t too noticeable/intense. You can do that by experimenting with its flow and density. (Its minimum setting is 70.) Note that the feather slider can affect the brush’s natural appearance.
You can be very precise with a brush to make very selective or precise changes. Start with a new brush and select auto mask so that only the center of your brush is affected.
Enhancing Snow’s Appearance
As you likely know, capturing snow in a photograph can be tricky. However, Lightroom’s Brush tool can be a lifesaver. Use a brush to boost exposure and add some clarity to certain areas. To do this, click on Range Mask > Luminance. This will allow you more control over which areas to change.
