Video Tutorial: 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.

Exposure blending is a valuable tool to learn, even when you’re used to getting everything right in-camera. It can open up a lot of creative options. Watch the video above and then apply some of these concepts in your landscapes, nightscapes, and cityscapes. This is actually not a brand new concept. Blending different pieces of differing exposures together has been long practiced in the darkroom by classic film photographers as well!
