Yesterday I gave a shout-out to Kristina Sherk’s new class on KelbyOne on high-end skin retouching techniques, and this is absolutely nothing like that. LOL!!

I ran across this tutorial of hers last night on YouTube and when I saw the headline, “How to create Lens Flare in Lightroom 4″ I just assumed that she started in Lightroom; jumped over to Photoshop to use the Lens Flare filter, and then jumped back. Pretty standard stuff, right?

I was wrong. She does it ALL in Lightroom (and it’s a very clever method). So much so that it’s double-Kristina shout-out Tuesday here on my blog. Here’s the video:

That’s pretty clever, right! :)

Hope that makes your Tuesday a little more fun.

Best,

-Scott

P.S. This will work in Camera Raw, too, but of course there is already a Lens Flare filter in Photoshop, so…ya know.
