Manual Blending Workflow Overview

Going to Sun Road, Glacier National Park, Montana (MT), USA

We get lots of questions about how we blend our images. For photos with an extremely wide dynamic range – like the one you see here – we blend two or more exposures for a finished image. We use a manual technique that we’ve worked together to develop over the years. The process involves creating and refining masks to achieve a natural look. It would take too much time to explain the entire process – our recorded webinars teach the entire process in about 9 hours – but we’ve put together a brief video that shows our basic workflow.

About Author Jay Patel

I could startoff like this – “Seeds of Jay Patel’s appreciation for beautiful places were planted early in his childhood….” but it would get boring really fast. I will just sum it up and say that I am a Landscape and Wilderness Photographer who loves to capture dramatic light. My photographs have been published in various magazines, calendars and advertising materials throughout the world.
