In Mastering Skin Tones…
There are probably few things photographers spend more time obsessing over when editing than skin tones. Are they too cool, too warm, too green? How do I know if these are even “right?!”
This course was designed to answer those exact questions. It contains the “math” behind nice clean tones (yes, there are actual numbers that can help you – it’s not all just blind guessing!), as well as activities to help you learn to train your eye.
Laura will take you through her editing workflow (beginning in LR, adding creative touches in PS, and ending in LR again*), not only so you can see how she edits, but also so you can see what order to adjust your settings in to help you achieve nice skin tones with as little headache as possible. She’ll discuss troubleshooting issues like multiple skin tones in a single image and dealing with color casts, as well as taking you behind the scenes on a mini shoot with her and her boys to show you how she spots locations to set herself up for a clean edit.
Getting Started: calibration, in-camera settings, Lightroom vs. ACR & Photostop
Editing by Numbers: do the math; skin numbers in Lightroom & Photoshop, temperature, tint, presets, HSL & exposure
How to Shoot “Clean”: how to deal with color casts & manage multiple skin tones! SCORE!!!
Houston we have a Problem: TROUBLESHOOTING; the most important things to know about skin tones!
Watch Me Edit & Assignments: Go behind the scenes with Laura as she walks you step by step through her perfect skin tone process (and don’t forget the bonus assignments!!)
*This course heavily utilizes Lightroom Classic for mastering skin tones. It is the recommended program to accompany this course.
50+ page downloadable e-book;
5 editing videos; and
1 behind-the-scenes shooting video.

“Just when I thought about hanging up photography for a little bit, this purchase had re-inspired me to keep going. Thank you for sharing this course!” ~ ED
In Mastering Greens…
Are you tired of struggling against untameable greens without really being sure how to bring them to life the way you see in your head?
How do you bring them under control when they’re too bright or cool them down without making your image feel cold? How do you add warmth without making them sickly yellow? How do you replicate what you did “that one time” so that you create a consistent look, representing your style? How do you set yourself up for success in camera and navigate more challenging lighting conditions? The answers to all these questions, and more, are found in our brand new mini course: Mastering Greens with Laura Froese!
Whether you are a Lightroom user, or prefer Photoshop, she walks you through both programs and shows you not only the tools available to you (including ones you might never have thought of!), but also how to use them in a way that creates the look you want so that you UNDERSTAND what you’re doing. If you want to be in full control of your greens from now on, this is the course for you!
30-page downloadable e-book;
2 videos to walk you through both LR and PS tools showing you how to use them to control your greens; and
1 full, start-to-finish editing video working through some challenging greens.

“After ordering Mastering Skin Tones with Laura a while back, it was really a matter of when the new Mastering Greens course came out as to when I would get it! I was most definitely not disappointed! I love capturing my kiddos outdoors and I love spring and all the color coming back to the world! However, I don’t love my pictures looking 90% green! So thankful for this material and the wealth of information it provides! There is so much content, I will be going through it all a second time! Thank you for sharing more of your knowledge of photography and editing Laura!!! ” ~ Beth W.
“This class has lots of good information and the handout was very easy to follow along with. I loved that she gave us Lightroom and Photoshop editing videos!” ~ Kim D.
