Blend 5 Images Using Luminosity Masks

Blending Images With Luminosity Masks

When we photograph subjects that have very deep shadows or extremely bright highlights, such as shooting directly into the sun, we need to take many more exposures to capture the detail. This tutorial shows how to blend 5 images together to deal with the bright sun.

In this blend 5 images were required in order to capture the full dynamic range of the scene. This is very typical when you shoot directly into the sun and often requires many more images to capture the detail then a typical landscape. I use two image to blend to capture the majority of the detail in the foreground and the sky, but then I use an additional 3 images to deal with the highlights around the sun.

This technique can also be used to draw detail of dark shadows in your images.

    Thank you Aaron, I did wonder how to add to an existing mask and you have explained it well.
