  • 12 Videos, Part 1 has 5 videos, starting with the absolute basics, to how to create luminosity masks, how to make specific adjustments, and then onto a full Milky Way workflow. Part 2 teaches advanced exposure blending, starting with which exposure to create the masks on, which masks to use in the blending process, and how many exposures you need. Then we move onto 5 full digital blending workflows that will teach you everything you need to know about how to create stunning images with luminosity masks.

“Jimmy’s Advanced course will take your cookie dough post processing and carve it into wood with utmost craftsmanship”
Blake Rudis,
“Wow! The course is great! Simple and straightforward, you have
definitely opened a new door for me in my post processing work!
Good-bye plug-ins…well most of my plug-ins LOL. “
Tom Stone, Portfolio
“Okay, you’ve got the camera and you are nailing the compositions, but your processing leaves you scratching your head.

Well then, it’s time to stop beating yourself up and to purchase the Art of Digital Blending course…better still, just buy the Masterclass Pack!

In no time at all you’ll be pulling data from your camera that you would have otherwise thought impossible. Take your processing skills to the level you want them to be at with easy to follow videos and sample images to practice on.Just do it…!”

“I can highly recommend Jimmy’s courses. After just one section of one chapter of one course my images have improved exponentially.

Tnx Jimmy! I am now forever a fan of both your work and your courses”

“You sir, are a genious! Luminosity masks have changed my life! AMAZING! I also just bought the Topaz Labs DeNoiz plugin. Outrageous! Great training pack, man! The Actions and included DNG’s are just gold! I’ll be recommending you to all my phototog buds.

“Jimmy I cannot say enough about your tutorials they are by far the
best I have ever seen and very easy to follow. Just so much fun.
Art Cid”
Art Cid, Portfolio
“Just bought and downloaded your instructional video and among many videos already seen, I have to admit that yours is without any doubt the best I’ve ever seen! Well explained and done. Not a 3 hrs boring explanation but a direct and effective way to learn and use the powerful luminosity masks.”
Massimiliano Fontana,
“There is always a bit of confusion about what the Digital Blending is. This course is the best and most specific answer you can find at the moment. Jimmy explains with disarming simplicity the technique, by covering all the steps, from RAW conversion to manual exposure blending, from further processing to finishing touches, describing in every detail the full potential and possible uses of the luminosity masks.

The strong point of the course is that Jimmy doesn’t explain you only one way to proceed, but he teaches in every lesson the various opportunities by showing on monitor each time pros and cons. You will end up with more than one solution for every blending situation, which is a great thing.”

Emanuele Serraino, Portfolio
I can truly recommended it for those who would like to take your HDR processing to the next level. I will definitely will be using technique learn from that videos and incorporate it to my workflow.”
Franciscus Tan, Portfolio
Amazing. It so fundamentally makes sense. Image luminosity controls in lightroom (and basic controls in ACR and photoshop) are so blunt in impact and effect compared to this methodology.” “If Ansel Adams was alive he’d have gone digital and would be using this workflow and methodology and he would so readily “get it.”
Michael Colby
Your video tutorials are awesome! I really enjoy watching them, really well made. Thank you very much for helping me evolve my photography.”
Bruno Ázera, Portfolio

“The perfect follow up of the HDR course if you want to get even more involved in the control of your image post processing. Unlike with the first course, however, it takes significantly more time to assimilate the subtleties of this workflow as the possibilities of editing a single shot become endless and are a lot more user centred.. The resulting picture depends solely on creativity of the user rather than being restricted by the algorithm of a third party software. I’m a lot more satisfied with the quality of my pictures since I followed Jimmy’s tutorial. However, beware that the amount of time spent per picture will increase dramatically. No more batch processing :)

If you’re new to Luminosity Masks you may be wondering what they are and how they can give your images that professional finish.

Essentially, Luminosity Masks are an advanced selection tool that can give you complete control over your imagery. They are also the most powerful tool in our arsenal for cleanly blending exposures, without having to rely on 3rd party HDR software, which often leave our images looking overly surreal.

You can find out more about the benefits of Luminosity Masks in this article; Why Use Luminosity Masks in Exposure Blending. And you can learn the basics of Luminosity Masks in this article on; The Basics Of Luminosity Masks In Digital Blending

Luminosity Masks were the most important photography technique learned in 2014, according to most Shutter Evolve readers – Find Out More (Please see the comment section)
