The Mask Series: Basic Blending
Many times, when you’re outside and you want to expose for a subject, the sky gets blown out. Or vice versa, the sky gets exposed correctly but your subject gets too dark.
In this day and age, you can easily fix this problem in Photoshop.
You’ll learn how to blend two photographs together – one processed for the highlights and the other processed for the shadows – to create beautiful landscape photos.
Basic knowledge of Photoshop is required.
Composition & Perception
Creating unique photography is difficult.
Being in the Landscape Photography business, you are trained to look for perfect light and stunning skies. You’re taught to shoot only during the golden hour and only when the clouds are positively radiant with sunbeams.
But when you shoot the same way, you end up with photographs that also look the same.
Start thinking out of the box and learn how to take beautiful landscape photos that will stand out.
