Learn the techniques used to create this image from start to finish.
A PSD file of the processed image is included to refer to and follow along with.
In this tutorial video, I cover my entire processing workflow for this image starting in Camera Raw and ending in Adobe Photoshop. You don’t need to buy any extra plugins or panels in order to follow along. I also cover some of my thought process and decisions I made while photographing this scene in the field. The main techniques covered are, but not limited to: blending multiple exposures to fix blurry leaves, removing lens flares non-destructively, controlling greens, enhancing light, cloning to improve composition, dodging, light painting, adding micro contrast, protecting highlights and shadows, easily using luminosity masks, adding orton, color separation, resizing and sharpening for the web.
