As a follow-up to Smart Objects, I now present you with a command that complements Smart Objects. It lives with the Color Adjustments, but it works as a Smart Filter and it goes by the name Shadows Highlights. Its job is to brighten shadows, that is, make them less shadowy and darken highlights. So it reduces the contrast of an image, but it does so like a sharpening filter. In other words, it traces bright halos inside the shadows and dark halos inside the highlights, which mean that as you correct the luminance of a photograph, you also increase its impact.
For example, over the course of this chapter, we're going to take this nicely composed photograph and turn it into this. Which I think is interesting, because we start with the photo that looks fine, right? And then we turned it into something that looks fantastic. And you know why, I know that, you are going to learn a lot from this chapter, because I've got this guy and he's just going to stare the information into you.
