Let’s wrap all this Luminosity Masking stuff up to one killer conclusion! We are going to talk about some advanced concepts here, but by the time you are done, you will be prepared to take on the Empire!
So we already talked about the Science behind Luminosity Masks and how to use them with Landscapes.
This week we are going to look at how we can use Luminosity Masks with Portraits. Don’t read too far into this, in reality, it is no different than using them with Landscapes. All of the principles remain the same we just have to decide where we want the viewer to focus. Luminosity Masks can be instrumental with portraits, they are not just Landscape tools!
So we talked about the Science behind Luminosity Masks last week. While I love that stuff (the inner number nerd in me) you may have found it to be a little underwhelming because we were working on a Test Image.
This week we are going to take a look at the nerdy side of Luminosity Masking. We are going to break down the Luminosity Masking panel and get in the weeds. The nerdy stuff is my favorite, hey, I never claimed to be a cool kid :)
Hello ON1 Plus Community, I am so delighted to be here once again! In past months I have brought you several series on Workflow and Artistry. This month I am going to do something new. I am going to take the Topic of Luminosity Masking and dig deep into the weeds of it. So instead of a broad topic, we are going to look at a small topic and expand it out!
It has been a phenomenal month as a guest coach. We discussed the Luminosity Making feature in Photo RAW quite extensively. If you were a novice before I hope that bumped you up a couple of notches. If you were an amateur Luminosity Masker, I could only wish that you are more comfortable using it.
It is always a pleasure guest coaching here at ON1 Plus. There is such a high-caliber of photographers here in this community, and I am always ecstatic when I can teach you new tricks! Hopefully, after this month I have shown you a few more things about Artistry. It is not the easiest thing to comprehend nor teach.
Hello ON1 Plus Community and thank you very much for having me back again. It is not every year that I get the opportunity to Guest Coach this wonderful community twice, but boy am I glad I am here. As I have stated in the past many times, this community flourishes with creativity and passion. It is really a blessing to be a part of it.
Thank you for making my experience as an ON1 Guest Coach a memorable one. This wasn’t my first rodeo here and definitely won’t be my last! To say this community is inspiring is an understatement. Through your thought provoking feedback and desire to continue learning, I have been reinvigorated as an educator and mentor.
I just wanted to take the time to say hello and give you a brief introduction before I guest coach for the month. So here it goes!
I am Blake Rudis of f.64 Academy, and I am passionate about high-quality photography education. I wasn’t always a photo educator, though.
