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 :)

Pointing your camera into the sun can make a great photograph. However, doing so usually leaves those backlit foreground elements in deep shadow. In this start-to-finish workflow video, watch ON1 Guru Scott Davenport harness the power of Local Adjustments and ON1 Photo RAW’s masking tools to even exposure and color tone of backlit, shadowy subjects.
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!
Hi everyone. I just wanted to say thanks for joining me this month with our back to basics topic. I hope I was able to help those of you that are new or needed a refresher. This was a new and different topic to teach, find all the highlights below.
Hey everyone. In this last “Back To Basics” themed video, I wanted to help out some one who’s just starting out with photo editing. ON1 has a lot of powerful tools and if you try to use all of them at once, you probably won’t get very far. Not to mention, what do you do when there’s adjustments that seem to be in multiple places? That’s exactly what we’ll cover in this video.
Happy holidays everyone. In this short video I quickly go through basic settings for both Photo RAW 2018 and your camera in different capture situations. First I talk about how to set up the camera differently depending on whether you are out to capture a landscape on your tripod or working with moving subjects and changing light conditions. Next I go into some of the basic preferences, settings and customization that I think you should consider using in Photo RAW 2018 before you even start editing an image.
Hello Everyone! Thank you to those that uploaded a photo to be critiqued this month. The individual photo critique videos are posted below.
Happy Holidays everyone! It has been a wild month in ON1 Plus. We’ve released two new courses, a bundle of rewards downloads, all the while getting “Back to Basics.” So kick back with a glass of eggnog and enjoy this quick recap of everything going on in Plus.
Happy holidays everyone! Here by popular demand is another Your Photo Our Look video. We asked the Plus community to submit their RAW images for us to edit up our way in Photo RAW 2018. In this edition I edit three Plus member’s photos. After raw processing the first image of a couple in a crowd, I use one of Photo RAW 2018’s stock Effects presets to give the photo a modern look and then add a Blur filter in Effects to make the couple stand out. Next I test the limits of Photo RAW’s ability to process an extremely high contrast landscape scene, boosting the shadows with a combination of local adjustments before removing some distractions and finish process the image in Effects without using presets. Finally I raw process, remove distractions and use one of my Winter Classic Effects presets to add character to a lovely winter scene of a barn in the woods.
Well folks, this is probably the last video you thought you’d see from me today. It has virtually nothing to do with my pushing around sliders and teaching you fancy new editing techniques. But if you’re just starting out, or you’re even more advanced and having trouble figuring out what to do with your photos, I’m hoping it helps. Enjoy!
This month we held a very different type of webinar, instead of editing and answer the same old questions Matt talks about getting back to basics when it comes to your photography education. He spends time quite a bi of time talking about the learning process and helping you understand what is most important. So kick back, click play and leave the audio playing in the background while you go edit your photos.

Welcome to my first Back to Basics video. This one is a video that first came to my mind when we talked about getting back to basics. I talked to folks so many times through out the last year that hadn’t even taken their photos off their card yet. So that’s going to be the first thing we tackle.
