  • Exposure blending video tutorial

    by Adam Gibbs
    The dynamic range that modern-day digital cameras can capture in one exposure is phenomenal. However, maintaining detail within both highlights and shadows is one of the most significant challenges for landscape photographers. Although the latest cameras can record scenes with substantial discrepancies between deep shadows and the brightest of highlights, some scenes require a helping hand with either graduated neutral density filters or post-processing techniques.

  • Full editing course on landscape photography

    by Albert Dros
    This course is all about getting the most out of your RAW files through various postprocessing techniques. If you're interested to learn basic and advanced postprocessing techniques to get your images to the next level, then this course is for you.
    I have no secrets. Everyone has their own vision and the way they see things. Even if I teach you all of my techniques, you'll still not create the same images, simply because every person is different.
    To me, a photo serves as a memory. And sometimes I romanticise that moment by adding touches of beauty, playing with colour and enhancing light. However, the moment stays intact. I don't replace skies, add milky ways, or any different elements. Simply because I want to portray the moment and the story. By changing the moment completely in postprocessing, the real moment or story, is gone.

  • Three Trees

    by Alex Noriega
    I cover the post-production of three very different tree images: Ariandel, Forest Haven, and Rainbow Rider. While the forest is a common theme among these photographs, they feature greatly varied atmosphere, color, and light. You'll learn a wide variety of techniques due to their diversity, but it will also be helpful to see which techniques I use on all three, so that you can learn how to apply them to any situation and any type of light.
  • Edge of Light

    by Alex Noriega
    I’ll show you how I harness the potential of common types of light in three of my favorite images: Crescendo, Funnel Factory, and Agon Wastes. These photos feature three of my favorite types of light: the last direct light of the evening, soft pre-dawn twilight, and dappled afternoon light created by cloud shadows. You’ll learn a variety of ideas and techniques for working creatively with light and color in your photographs, outside of sunrises and sunsets.

  • A Journey into the world of forests

    by Enrico Fossati
    A Journey into the world of forests
    A Journey into the world of forests is a collection of instructional videos to process forest landscape photographs with a particular fantasy and painterly feeling I developed over the years. After many years I spent shooting forests and streams I decided to build a collection of videos focused on this particular genre of photography that I particularly love. The masterclass will talk about inspiration, and processing forest scenes to render them with a special fantasy and painterly style.
    The masterclass is composed of 6 Videos plus an introduction in which I explain from start to finish the process of the images for a duration of about 6 hours. The process explained is characterized by a strong artistic component where a certain amount of manual work is needed. Once acquired, the necessary skill can grant you the ability to develop your own unique pictures.

  • Essential Theory - Refining Composition 1

    by Eric Bennet
    This video focuses on the fundamental compositional principles that go into making a compelling photograph. Instead of technical aspects of photography, I explain more about the art of photography–telling a story through images and creating thought provoking photographs that move others. It consists of 7 chapters, breaking down what can specifically be done in order to create a composition that is concise and powerful. You will see detailed explanations of each principle, personal stories from the field, and many image examples where these concepts are demonstrated through both my successes and failures, so you can know how to implement them into your own photography as well as what you can avoid. You will learn how to better organize both wide and intimate scenes, understand and compose abstract scenes, create visual flow, draw attention and focus to your subjects, know what to include or exclude, pre-visualize images, and influence the viewer's eye to look exactly where you want them to.
    This is where it all begins, with taking a great photo in the field. These are the most important things I have learned over the last decade as a landscape photographer.
  • Essential Theory - Refining Composition 2

    by Eric Bennet
    Once you are able to see light the way I do, you will realize there is no such thing as bad light, and be able to create scenes all throughout the day–no longer limited by weather conditions and factors that are out of your control. The second installment of this series focuses on the many different qualities of both direct and indirect light that you can encounter in the field, how to anticipate them, and creative and effective ways you can utilize them in order to create compelling images with strong visual flow. It consists of 7 Chapters in order to cover my entire approach to photographing natural light from sun up until sun down. You will gain a clear understanding of the nuances of light, the role that light and shadow play in composition by accentuating certain elements and hiding others, and how to pair subject matter with the kind of lighting that will best complement it in order to create a cohesive scene with a strong sense of subject, depth, balance, visual flow, and mood. I also show several different ways you can photograph ordinary light in order to make it appear more spectacular.
    Capturing natural light is not only my favorite part of photography, it is the most fundamental principle of photography. Until you learn how to work with the light, it will work against you. 
  • "Luminance" - Enhancing Soft Light

    by Eric Bennet
    This tutorial shows the different tools and techniques I use to enhance soft light in a bold yet natural looking way. Since soft light is the most commonly occurring kind of lighting, understanding more ways that it can be used effectively will help you to be more creative and unlock more possibilities. I show my approach to handling three different kinds of soft light: shade, overcast, and twilight. Through the four different image examples, you will see my entire workflow and how it differs in each image according to the quality of the light, subject matter, and overall feeling. You will also notice that I use some of the same techniques in all of them. 
    You will see how I subtly build contrast through a combination of different adjustments. The main techniques demonstrated are: using luminosity masks to target specific areas and increase midtone contrast, color separation, luminance, depth, and definition in the scene in a non-destructive way. I also show ways to improve color harmony, eliminate color casts, manage saturation, increase tonality, dodge and burn, mitigate distractions, and resize and sharpen for the web. Most importantly, my concise and deliberate workflow is easy to follow and implement in your own images.

  • "Dark Brilliance" - Low Key Processing

    by Eric Bennet
    This tutorial video shows how I process high contrast scenes with intense lighting and deep shadows. I also review all the other exposures I took in the field of these scenes while the lighting was changing and articulate my process of trying different compositions and how I ended up selecting the exposures that I edited.
    The main techniques demonstrated are: using luminosity masks to target specific areas and add midtone contrast, color separation, depth, and definition to the scene in a non-destructive way. I also show ways to simplify the color palette, enhance light, improve tonality, add drama, time blend, minimize and clone out distractions, improve visual flow, precisely correct lens distortion, and resize and sharpen for the web. Most importantly, my concise and deliberate workflow is very easy to follow and implement in your own scenes.

  • "High Key Processing" - Start to Finish Video

    by Eric Bennet
    This tutorial video contains 4 chapters, where I first cover the theory behind High Key Processing, and then show the full workflow and techniques I used in order to process these 3 images from start to finish. I use high key processing in some of my images in order to give them a surreal, pure, and bright feeling. The main techniques covered are, but not limited to: RAW Processing, Color Management, Adding Midtone Contrast, Creating Micro Contrast, Using Luminosity Masks, Raising Exposure While Preserving Highlights, Enhancing Atmosphere, and Cloning Out Distractions. Most importantly, you will learn what kind of lighting, composition, and subject matter lend themselves best to the unique look of high key processing, so that you know when to apply it to your own images. This video is intended for photographers that have already seen some of my other videos, where I spend more time explaining basic techniques; here, I mainly spend time explaining the techniques that are not shown in my other videos.

  • Photo Editing Tutorial for Architecture Photos

    by Michael Breitung
    In this photo editing tutorial, I share my complete workflow for processing Architecture Photos in Lightroom and Photoshop.
    I love to take cityscape and architecture photos during my travels. My favorite time to do so is during the blue hour. The color contrast between the blue sky and the incandescent lights in the city was just fantastic at that time.
    During a visit to Venice, I captured many such photos. One of those is the photo you see in the before-and-after comparison below. The first photo shows the out-of-camera RAW file without any settings applied. The second image shows the final result of the photo editing. In the tutorial, you’ll learn every technique I used to create it.

  • Photo Editing for Night Photos

    by Michael Breitung
    In this video tutorial, I share my complete workflow for editing Milky Way photos. My main focus with such night photos is for them to reflect the atmosphere of the night while showing enough detail to create interest in the foreground. To achieve this, I developed special photo editing techniques, which I share in the tutorial.
    Because I want to be able to create large prints of my photos, another goal of my night photo editing is to achieve the highest possible image quality. That’s why another focus of the tutorial is on dealing with noise and ensuring sharpness from close foreground to far background in Milky Way photos.

  • Photo Editing for Star Trail Photos

    by Michael Breitung
    In this photo editing tutorial, I show my complete workflow for processing star trail photos. My main focus when editing such images is, similar to my tutorial for processing night photos, to reflect the atmosphere of the night while showing enough detail to create interest in the foreground.
    Because during a pitch black night, it’s hard to find a light source that could justify detail to be visible in the foreground, I often use a technique called time-blending to include glow from twilight. If introduced subtly, this glow can serve as the light source and help to create a better result.
    As usual, the workflow I show in the tutorial ensures the highest possible quality for the resulting photos, a requirement for printing.

  • Photo Editing for Panorama Photos

    by Michael Breitung
    In this photo editing tutorial, I show my complete workflow for creating high-quality panoramic images. I use the tricky panorama I took at Cape Woolamai as an example image. The light that evening was spectacular but also fleeting, so I had to work fast. Because my wide-angle lens wasn’t sufficient to capture the whole cove, I opted for a panorama combined with bracketing.
    With the direct sunlight, the rolling waves, and the fact that I wasn’t using a nodal rail or special panorama equipment, putting the photo together to create a high-quality result involved a set of unique techniques.

  • Something From Nothing - El Capitan

    by Ryan Dyar
    This in-depth tutorial is a laid back journey into seeing what can be created when timing and field technique is not working in our favor. Join in as we attempt to make something from nothing by blending different atmospherics from two separate RAW files taken several minutes apart… after already moving the camera. More than just trying to blend a couple images, the processing of this image requires fixing/creating reflections, removing distractions elements, using atmosphere to solve a compositional flaw, building three dimensional textures, the many ways ACR local adjustments can be used, and a lot more. If you’re more of a conservative type image editor then this tutorial might cause you anxiety.

  • Something from Nothing 2

    by Ryan Dyar
    Have you ever taken a photo you were excited about, just to get home and realize that it didn't represent the scene you experienced in the field? Unfortunately, this is a common issue most photographers I know have experienced. However, with modern software and a little creative vision you can make something from nothing. 
    This video starts with one of the more bland photos I have ever taken that didn't do the actual scene any justice. Watch along as I bring as much color and light out of the RAW files as possible, clean up the foreground, create a light source to light the mountain, building and enhancing cloud structure, and more. Almost two hours of knowledge with no filler!

    Creative vision in the field is what can lead to creative vision in post-processing. In this tutorial we go from taking the photos for our creative puzzle in the field, to piecing them together on the computer. Starting with a multi-layered perspective blend and sky relocation, we go on to perform an entire workflow consisting of RAW processing, range masks, focus stacking, luminosity masks, light creation, warping, liquifying, pinching, atmosphere enhancements, texture adjustments and much more. 
    This tutorial covers the modern techniques many of the most creative photographers are using today, yet very rarely reveal.

    Then there are things like split-toning, handmade light rays, astonishing amounts of cloning from several exposures, how large of a role that the Adobe Camera Raw filter can play in our workflow, hand-drawn textures, and more.

Wherever I can, I show how to do the techniques both with TK9 and without. However, note that some of the advanced masking steps aren’t practical or possible without it.

  • Composition Masterclass

    by William Patino
    Through years of teaching, I’ve found that composition is the main consistent area that my students require help with, regardless of their experience level. In this course, I'll share the ‘how’ but more importantly, the ‘why’ behind composition, so you have the knowledge to see the shot and the know-how to make the most of any scenario.

  • Landscape Retouching Masterclass

    by William Patino
    I know when I first started on my photography journey, learning how to process my raw files in Lightroom or Photoshop was quite daunting. Over the years, I’ve developed an editing workflow that is highly effective, fun, and intuitive to adopt. I believe if something is simple, it can be more enjoyable, and with that enjoyment comes greater results and enthusiasm.
