  1. Thanks for the explanation! I do think this makes sense, but I look forward to learning more about Levels so I understand it in more depth.
  2. I apologize in advance is this is covered elsewhere (I did try to look for it) but it's a very broad processing flow question. As general background, I'm in your RAW class now, and I do not yet know how to use Photoshop (just basic things like cropping and the healing tool). I've never used Lightroom. I have seen professional photographers (I stress photographers, not professional editors) use the Lightroom sliders that correspond to the sliders in ACR to make artistic adjustments to their photos. For example, they wanted a strong light/shadow contrast, or they wanted to emphasize certain colors using the saturation sliders. My impression from what I've seen you teach is that you would recommend making artistic adjustments in Photoshop, after a clean edit is completed in ACR. Is that impression correct? Is it ever okay to make artistic choices within the sliders of ACR instead of waiting until Photoshop? For example, if I know in advance that want very strong contrast between light and shadows (even if it means losing detail in the shadows), would it be okay to make this happen in RAW or do you still recommend making the clean edit in ACR first and then artistic adjustments in Photoshop?
