I was contacted by Peter Grant because he was having some unique issues in blending three images together using the techniques I had shown in previous videos.
In this Challenge Azza video I was faced with a couple of issues that I haven’t shown in video before. Peter supplied me with three images all shot 2 stops apart, which meant that we had large gaps in information, which makes image blending a little more difficult. I prefer to shoot images with a 1 stop difference between frames, which gives me many more options in image blending. We can overcome the difference in exposures though by using slightly different techniques.
The two largest issues I faced in this was the colour cast caused by the light hitting the mountains, creating a blue cast that didn’t look right when the images were blended. The second issue is the clouds / fog moving along the ridge lines didn’t line up between exposures.
In this video I tackle those two issues, plus use a couple of additional techniques to isolate parts of the scene.
