Layer Masking in Photoshop

Hey People,

Following up my last post Alex Wise from posted up a comment regarding one of my fav shots from the morning. You can see this comment here.

IT was in regards to an article he had written about combining two images to form one, a trick which is a good way to use a shot where the sky is exposed correctly, and one where the foreground is exposed correctly. Too often it seems with landscape photography, you have odd light.. odd times and sometimes you have to compromise to what you find best.

Anyway here is the result,

Staring Down the Sun

Staring Down the Sun

This shot has the sky at captured at -1 exposure, and the foreground and +/- 0.

You can find the tutorial by alex here.

Thank you Alex, very much appreciated 🙂

Till next time…

  • Yep im really stoked with it, it opens a new door to bracketing shots for landscapes… which is nice. Obviously dont want to over use it but sometimes a shot just feels special.. its nice to know you dont have to compromise the sky or the foreground entirely.
