I am reminded of the Back to the Future theme song by Huey Lewis and the News, “That’s the power, that’s the power of Curves”, oh wait that was the power of love.  Anyway, the curves adjustment layer runs a lot deeper than you think in the post processing world.  If it does not have a place in your workflow, you may want to watch this one and see how you can use curves not only for white balance.

In this tutorial I will show you how I breakdown an image into it’s 3 main parts, Highlight, Shadow, and Mid tones and modify them independently with the power of curves.  I even throw in a pretty cool dollar fifty trick you can tell all your friends!
