Introducing my first ever tutorial video series “Master exposure blending“. In this video series I focus on how to combine different exposures using blending and HDR tonemaping. I explain how I prepare my photos in Lightroom, how to use layers and layer masks, how to created and use luminance masks and also how to blend with them. I also cover how I use Oloneo Photoengine and Photomatix to make the work quicker and how to blend panoramic images.
The series includes over 2 hours of video, covering these toppics

5. Creating luminance masks
6. Blending two exposures
7. Blending multiple exposures
8. Using Oloneo Photoengine
9. Using Photomatix Pro
10. Blending panoramatic photos
11. Adding glow
I don’t go through the edit from start to finish on the provided photos, I rather focus on the blending technique of the images, which is the main subject of these videos.
To follow my work with luminance masks you will need a copy of any version of Photoshop. For the specific videos, I also suggest Ligtroom, as I think its the best program for photo organisation (but of course you can follow the blending videos without it). In the videos on Oloneo Photoengine and Photomatix Pro I use the respective software. In the video on Panorama blending I also use PTgui.
Additionally you will receive all the RAW files I’m using (28 in total), so you can try all the edits also for yourself.
The whole tutorial can be ordered for only 49 USD and can be immediately downloaded.
