Blending Exposures

Blending exposures is an essential skill for all landscape photographers. In the field we use graduated Lee ND filters wherever possible to achieve a single exposure but the reality is that the dynamic range is sometimes too wide and the dispersion of light too complicated to manage the image in one exposure. This is where blending exposures comes to the fore. In this course we will look at two introductory methods for blending exposures. First off we will example the automated blending methods within Lightroom and Camera RAW. We will also cover the basics of manually blending in Photoshop while also highlighting what situations it's necessary to blend and why. This course is perfect for people starting out with blending and should provide the ideal grounding to really take control of dynamic range in post processing.

Rushed my way through all the videos on LR, now it’s time to go over them again…but in a more relaxed way. I really enjoyed them. I thought I had a decent knowledge of LR but you have given me a new insight. Well worth the money.

I have just finished Peter’s online workshop. It was brilliant and I learned loads & loads. I have even got my head around the ‘range mask’ thing. Now I understand it. If you use Lightroom he shows you what all the buttons etc do. I even might try the manual blending in Photoshop !! It was the best money for photographic training I have spent in years. Now I hope I put into practice what I’ve learned. The great thing is I can go back to it anytime I need too. Thanks again Peter.
