Exposure blending is a revolutionary digital darkroom technique that will assist you in overcoming the limitations of your camera and capture a scene with the full tonal range you witnessed in the field.
This is a common challenge for any area of photography, but landscape photographers find this especially difficult since we typically can not manipulate or alter the aMbient light. You've probably recognized this challenge in your own work: an overexposed sky, a foreground with crushed shadows, or a disappointing coMbination of the two. The incredible detail and light you witnessed in person has disappeared, and you instead go home with a lackluster representation of the beauty you intended to capture.
In this free step-by-step course, I discuss the entire process of exposure blending by detailing my personal workflow from autobracketing in the field to blending exposures together in Adobe Photoshop - available at no cost.
What's Included in the Exposure Blending eBook Course:
100+ Page eBook: This extensive guide provides in-depth instruction on every aspect of exposure blending, from the in-the-field workflow with your camera to the final touches in Photoshop. I also take detours to explain important concepts that contribute to a better blending experience, such as the importance of RAW format and how to create your own luminosity masks.
8 Video Tutorials: Photoshop processing workflows can be quite difficult to grasp by simple screenshots, so I have created 8 video tutorials that walk you through the entire blending process. I explain every step to blending brackets of three different scenes together, and also address how to avoid and reverse common nuisances of blending, such as sensor bloom, ghosting, and halos.
7 Image Files: To accompany the eBook and video tutorials, I've also included all of the image files used so you can process along with me for an easier flow of learning.
