You do a terrific job of explaining things clearly

I just wanted to let you know that I’m working my way through the Ultimate Landscape Photography Course and loving it! You do a terrific job of explaining things clearly, and you have a great onscreen presence and rapport with each other. Really enjoying it – looks like I’ll have to get Behind the Lens next… And I look forward to more after that!

I thoroughly enjoyed the video courses

I thoroughly enjoyed the video courses by Varina and Jay Patel. Their clear presentation style and real life examples of their teaching enabled me to rapidly understand and put into practice what they were teaching. Their style is quite personal as if you were on site with them. Excellent photography in the examples supports the learning experience. Histograms were always a bit of a mystery. Seeing how to use them to improve my “in-camera” results will enable me to get the results I see in the field.

In Sharp Focus Webinar very good

In Sharp Focus Webinar very good. Sometimes it felt like drinking from a firehouse, but good information.

Every single case study was excellent

Great course! I am loving the narrower scope but more in-depth approach and both the “in the field” workflow and “the photo I didn’t take” explanations. Every single case study was excellent. (Behind the Lens Course)

How do I know if this Exposure Blending Tutorial is for me?

This tutorial is for you if:

  • You want to learn to create natural-looking images with Photoshop layers and masks.
  • You're looking for a simple exposure blending workflow for high dynamic range images.
  • You don't want to spend a lot of time learning overly-complicated techniques.
  • You already have a basic knowledge of Photoshop layers and masks, and want to learn how to use them to create stunning landscape photos.

This tutorial might not be the right fit if:

  • You are a Photoshop beginner - if you don't have a basic knowledge of layers and masks, you may want to find out more before you start this course.
  • You want to learn about RAW Processing using Adobe Camera RAW or Lightroom. We don't discuss the RAW converter in this course.
  • You want to create highly-saturated or surrealistic images. In this course, we focus on producing natural-looking blends.
  • You are looking for an automated or slider-based solution to exposure blending for High Dynamic Range images. This course teaches a manual workflow that offers ultimate control over your finished image.
