|Okanagan Sunset in Kelowna this week
Read on for some more details about how it all worked, and a link to purchase a printed copy if you're interested;
This is a composite of three photos, captured in RAW on my Canon 50D with a EF-S 10-22 lens on. Captured at 0, -2 and +2 EV.
I processed the RAWs in Lightroom 5, then transferred to photoshop.
Ran the luminosity masking action I created earlier this week,
Started with 0EV shot on background, and then three layers of the -2 EV each with a slightly different luminosity mask for the highlights, and a slightly tweaked opacity.
Dropped two layers of the +2 EV on with similar settings for the shadows, as above.
One layer adjustment curves layer applied to every layer to adjust curves, applied to mid tones only.
I've included the layers I used below, as well as the original JPEGs derived from the RAWs to form the composite.
There is no shortage of tutorials online for luminosity layer masking, but maybe will find itself as the subject of a future post.
Here is a link if you would like to buy a copy of this print on demand at a variety of sizes and paper mediums, created by Zazzle.com who has a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee.
Thanks for reading,
