How to Add Snow to an Image in Lightroom 5 & Up

When Adobe released Lightroom 5, I was freakin’ ecstatic exploring all of the new features! With LR5, you could now add custom adjustments to specific parts of your photo. This meant there were a TON of fun new ways to edit in Lightroom! Painting light and color into the photo. Selectively brightening or darkening certain areas. Even adding the appearance of SNOW! I’d never been so excited to create new presets and brushes for Lightroom as I was when LR5 came out. In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to add snow to an image in Lightroom 5 using the MB White Winter Presets & Brushes. (This also works in newer versions of Lightroom!)
