Section 1: Landscape Retouching

We are going to review the entire workflow to retouch landscapes using Lightroom 5 only.


We get more in-depth and start doing more local adjustments of colors.


In this first video we are going to take these 3 exposures and make an HDR version of it using HDR Efex pro, but the result will not be very nice as it is a difficult situation for HDR software.


Now we are going to use a more advanced technology: luminosity masks. We are going to use it to blend different exposures, this is the final result, only the luminosity mask could help make it this clean with digital blending.

Digital blending

Sunrise and sunset are the best, but sometimes we are faced with only mid afternoon, this is what we are going to talk about.


This going to be another digital blending between 3 exposures, but this time we will mix it in a different way.


This is going to be the most complex project as we are again going to use Luminosity mask to blend 3 exposures and try to recover this hidden amazing sunset:


In this video we are going to talk about how to control colors precisely in Lightroom.


Getting good contrast with different white balance adjustments and getting some good drama is what we are going to tackle in this final project, which is Lightroom only.
