    I had totally forgotten about blending modes! Back in the day I would use soft light and screen quite a bit to lighten my photos. I think I stopped using them after I purchased a set of actions and use those for most of my editing now. Thanks for reminding me about them, they really are a great quick fix!ReplyCancel

    Emily, My name is Gene as you probably already know that because I am a subscriber to your site “Cozy Clicks”  I would just like to commend you on your site and all the great tips you offer.  I am about to enter my second set of classroom studies on lighting and metering.  My camera is only a Canon Rebel T3I and I do know my way around the camera fairly well and shoot mostly in Manual Mode and Raw.  I just wanted to say thank you for your emails and a great sight that is easy to understand and navigate.   Cheers and thank you Emily.   Gene Cordoni @ genecordoniphotography.comReplyCancel
