  2. Wayne submitted several images as part of his early registration bonus to the APAC Seminar 2014 which I reviewed in a video here:

    vimeo.com/auramckay/mini-image-review-wayne

    He provided a great portrait example for showing the tools I use for portrait retouching in Lightroom.

    This video goes in depth into converting to portrait retouching tips using Lightroom including using the clone/heal spot edit tool in two different ways, and brushes: skin soften, brighten eyes, whiten teeth.

    Yes, it's a long one but I walk you through step by step. I hope it's helpful. Let me know if you would like to see more videos like this or book your personal image review video.
