For landscape photographers who primarily shoot at sunrise and sunset, exposure bracketing and blending is a critical skill.
But there are some common mistakes that are easy to make in the blending process.
One of them is this:
Over blending exposures
Here’s what I mean.
Let’s say you’ve captured two exposures, one for the foreground and one for the sky.
You load them into separate layers in Photoshop and start blending the darker-exposed sky into the lighter-exposed foreground.
The sky is starting to look good, going from over-exposed to nice and evenly exposed.
But the changes are gradual and you missed the perfect point at which to STOP blending!
So you keep going and the sky gets darker and darker until BAM – the bright parts of the sky are darker than the bright parts of the foreground!
But you didn’t notice 🙁
Thing is, it’s easy to miss.
Sometimes a photo can play tricks on the eye. What looks brightest, actually isn’t.
Luckily there’s a simple technique in Photoshop you can use to know precisely the brightest part of any photo.
I reveal what that technique is on my upcoming webinar:
Plus as you might have guessed by the name, I also reveal 4 other critical mistakes that photographers make when blending exposures.
