Challenge Jimmy 1: Exposure Blending In Photoshop
Exposure Blending Tutorial In Photoshop
Welcome to the first episode of Challenge Jimmy, where you, the subscriber, can send me your RAW files which you found difficult to process. I take up the challenge and try to offer you advice which may help you with future images. To take part, please email me at challengejimmymc (at) gmail (dot) com. Include a paragraph detailing what you found difficult, and attach a full sized JPEG of your final version.
Thank you to Tommy Botello for sending me his images for this video. He created a beautiful composition, but had difficulty blending his exposures. In this video I talk about why these exposures were difficult to blend and how to get over this challenge in Photoshop. I also add some ideas for colouring, and making the image more impacting, while remaining natural. I hope you find it useful.
