In this, the final chapter of this tutorial we get deeper into Silver Efex Pro to show how we can fine tune this high key black and white portrait. We teak the brightness and contrast with the highlights, midtones, shadows and dynamic brightness sliders. We also use amplify whites and blacks and tweak soft contrast to change the balance of tones in the image. We use a colour filter to bring out detail and finally do some spot editing with Silver Efex control points.

This week we spend some time with the Lightroom Developer Module preparing our images for the final stage in Photoshop CS3. We play with the exposure sliders, white balance, spot editing and healing and then cropping. We also look at composition using foreground, middleground and background. And we review the entries to last week's shallow depth of field challenge while we listen to Howard Jones' latest podsafe hit, Revolution of the Heart.
