Luminosity masks are a go-to tool of mine when shooting sunsets, or trying to make a subject and a sky stand out. Join me in this complete, start-to-finish ON1 Workflow edit using luminosity masks to accurately post-process and apply filters to specific parts of this image.

Luminosity Masks are a staple in my workflow for my landscape and travel edits. My favorite, is using luminosity masks on images that have intriguing textures and patterns such as this one from Death Valley National Park. The ease of separating the tones of an image with luminosity masks can save us a lot of time. Especially on images like this where the tones are very similar and the different patterns would make it difficult to use a masking brush for adding Contrast, Dynamic Range, and other filters in ON1 Effects. Luminosity masks give us more control to create something beautiful with our photos.
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.
A luminosity mask is a powerful way to adjust very specific tonal regions in your photos. However, they can seem daunting to work with. In this Short Clip, see how ON1 Guru Scott Davenport works visually with luminosity masks to quickly and easily create masks for specific elements in his photo. With the classic masking mantra “black conceals, white reveals” in mind, working visually with the mask view makes luminosity masking much more approachable.
