Exposure Blending Using Adobe Photoshop CS6

Exposure Blending Using Adobe Photoshop CS6

I use exposure blending in Adobe Photoshop CS6 in order to add drama to an image that would otherwise be lackluster due to constraints, such as being out at a poor time of day, rapidly-changing weather, odd angle of the subject, or when using a lens that doesn’t accommodate creative exposure-assisting filters, such as a variable neutral density filter. In this video tutorial, I show how to exposure blend a subject that rises above the horizon during sunrise and sunset.

This is episode 2 of my In the Office series of photography tutorials. See more of my work here and check out episode 1 here.

Jay Goodrich is an internationally published adventure photojournalist living in Jackson, Wyoming. He started his professional career as a formally-trained architect. There was something about the corporate world within architecture that just didn’t work for Jay. Instead of complaining or continually living a life that didn’t satisfy, he built a business that opened doors to the world and is focused on the foundations of design and art that he learned while studying architecture in college.
