Blending multiple Exposures using Luminance Masks

As i (+Giuseppe Basile) mentioned in +Trey Ratcliff 's hangout the other night i am a big fan of +Tony Kuyper luminosity masks and use them on all my images.

You get so much more control with your selections as opposed to using other selection tools.

Here is a video that explains how to blend multiple exposures using the masks.

I was planning to do my own but with a newborn around i simply don't have the time at the moment.

If you need any questions answered shot in the comments.

Finally here is the link to +Tony Kuyper's site if you are interested in purchasing the luminosity masks.

Cheers Giu

+Calvin Hollywood Freaky Details

I use this technique on most of my seascape images. It does a fantastic job of pulling details outs of your main focal point in your image.

Its not only a technique you can use on seascapes Check out Calvins tutorial here http://www.scottkelby.com/blog/2010/archives/8691 where he uses this technique for his portraits.

Give it a try on your images..Cheers Giu

Shutter Blending

This is a technique i use a lot in my seascape shots. Sometimes you don't have the right water movement you are looking for in one exposure, so i need to blend one or more exposures to get the look i am after.

Check out the tutorial, there are some other handy tips there as well.

Any questions feel free to shoot in the comments.

Cheers Giu

Lightroom Enfuse

Have you ever wanted to create a HDR image straight in lightroom?

Well the answer is you can. Using the plugin Enfuse http://www.photographers-toolbox.com/products/lrenfuse.php. With the free trial the final image size is restricted to 500px. For a small donation you have the full version.

Here is a quick tutorial explaining how to install and use the software.

I much prefer this method to blend exposures as opposed to photomatix. The results speak for them selves..

Hope you guys enjoy. Leave your questions in the comments if you have any.

Cheers Giu

Cinemagraphs

This technique has only come about the last few months. Here are some examples if you are unsure on the finished result http://www.tripwiremagazine.com/2011/07/cinemagraphs.html .I fell in love with these the minute i saw them. Well here is the tutorial if you want to give it a go. This one is pretty advanced and you need CS5 extended to do the animation. I am just starting to delve into this myself.

I used this tecnique to create an animated GIF of the post processing on one of my images here. https://plus.google.com/107362628080904735459/posts/Qg5AwtWfNDr

Give it a go and post your results in the comments.

Here is part two of the tutorial i posted a few days ago. Has anyone had a chance to try the technique used here?

If you have i would be interested to see the difference between an old photo processed your usual way compared to the same photo processed using this technique..Create an album with the two photos and post it in the comments..

Looking forward to the results..Cheers Giu

Hey G+,

First up thanks for all the new followers to my page in the last 24 hours. As i mentioned in my last post it will basically be a tutorial mecca where i will be posting 1 tutorial a day.

I found this interview with Australian Photographer Peter Eastway quite interesting. It really gives a good insight on how to balance the light within your images directing the viewer to parts of the image you want as a focal point. Its around 1 hour long but worth the watch.

Cheers Giu

Hey G+,

I set up this page today as many of you guys did with uncertain thoughts on how i would use it. Well so far i have decided to use it as a tool to share some of the best kept tutorials i have stumbled upon over the years.

I will be keeping my personal account for all my photos so there will be no double ups. My aim is to share at least one tutorial a day here from the beginner to advanced techniques.

Here is a tutorial i have found really useful..Be sure to check out part two as well.

I am happy to answer any questions you may have with techniques used here,,just post in the comments.

Cheers Giu
