On Exposure Blending Post Processing
Supported by Sony
Saturday 29 June 2019, 2—4pm
In this intermediate workshop you will learn how to use powerful post processing tools such as luminosity masks and the gradient tool. Dylan Giannakopoulos will explain how you can use these to blend multiple exposures to cleanly recover detail and enhance the dynamic range of your imagery. Unlike HDR software, these manual methods of exposure blending are non-destructive, and allow for much finer and precise control, creating natural looking blends without that over processed ‘HDR look.’ You will be provided with the RAW files, so you can follow along as Dylan explains step by step how to exposure blend, taking your post processing skills to the next level.
At the conclusion of the workshop, you will be invited to join a private Facebook group which is strictly limited to past attendees of Dylan Gianna Photography Workshops. The Facebook group provides members a space to share their images, ask questions and learn tips and tricks from Dylan.
