How to “Sharpen” with the Brush Mask

In this Lightroom tutorial, I show you how you can use your Brush Masking tool to "sharpen" your images. It works particularly well for creatures that are rather hairy and have a good number of whiskers and eye lashes. However, I am sure you will find many uses for this once you dig into your own catalogue. Of course, its entirely up to you, how much time you would like to put into this process of your editing. I am sure your A+ images will get a lot more love and attention than your B team.

I hope you enjoy and please feel free to post your comments below. Until next time, happy snapping.
