In ON1 Photo RAW you can quickly and easily create and blend masks when editing photos. Use luminosity masks to blend filters and local adjustments to your photos easily. Luminosity masks will enable you to control your mask based on your photos bright and dark areas. Another easy way to blend a filter would be to use a color range mask. Color range masks allow you to create a mask using specific colors. Once you have a mask created, you can blend and refine it quickly using the masking tools.
Easily enhance your firework photos using ON1 Photo RAW 2018. By adding in contrast to your photo you will help to separate your fireworks from your background. Be careful when overdoing exposure because your firework highlights can get blown out quickly. I would recommend using basic tonal adjustments on fireworks photos because it may seem unnatural if you make bright and vibrant changes. Once you’ve set your tone and brought back some of the color into your firework explosions, take your photo into effects to start making creative adjustments. A great effect to use on fireworks is Dynamic Contrast because it helps to bring back some detail in your explosions and light trails. If you have distractions in your photo like people or objects, quickly subdue them by using a vignette.

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!
Black & White tones are great for creating a beautiful seascape photo. A powerful tool in ON1 Photo RAW 2018 allows for greater control and creativity in your photo editing. Specifically, Luminosity Masks allow you to selectively edit and apply effects to just the tones you want. If it sounds complex it REALLY isn’t. In fact, this technique will help your photo editing workflow become faster and more efficient. This works particularly well when editing landscape photos (or seascapes such as this one), and is perfect for enhancing a boring sky.
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.
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.
