It's a nice shot without using a flash. With Luminar Ai, there has been many improvements over the older version Luminar 4. You have complete improvements for Face corrections. They have made 100% improvements on the "Sky", including a lot of new sky's you can use. Luminar has a free trial period. Without changing anything, with the exception of the Face program, I was able to lighten up the face a little.   Posted: 10/07/2021 14:13:28

Luminar certainly improved the hands. I wish that his shot contained enough background to provide the context for this shot.   Posted: 10/10/2021 17:44:45

This is pretty good considering the lighting.   Posted: 10/11/2021 10:28:18
