Three Image Luminosity Mask Blend – Challenge Azza

Luminosity Mask Image Blending Challenge Azza 5

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.

    Plenty of useful tips to be stored in my memory bank after watching the challenge.

    As always an incredible useful instructional video on LM technique and rational for steps involved.

    Great video Azza, I always pick up a new technique from your tutorials.
