Blending Light HDR Photography – London Rush
Blending Light HDR Photography “London Rush” – Here’s a photo that I took in London, England. This is a shot of Westminster Bridge at blue hour. It was a gloomy day and the clouds made it look like a scene straight out of a Harry Potter Movie. I processed this image using luminosity masks in Photoshop. Luminosity masks are a great way to blend multiple exposures together to create natural looking HDR images. There’s a bit of a learning curve with LM masks, but it’s a nice “tool” to have in the old tool belt! In the next couple of months I will be posting a few videos on how to create Luminosity masks so keep an eye out for that.
Post Processing “London Rush” – Post Processing “London Rush” – I took three exposures EV (-2, 0, +2) I used Lightroom on a single exposure (EV, 0) to create a couple of different versions. Next I combined the original RAW files into Photoshop and mixed with Luminosity Masks. As I said above…I’m playing with Luminosity Masks to give my images a more realistic and magical look. More of this coming soon!
