"Flourishing Life" From Start to Finish


Run Time: 1 hr 45 min

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 panels or any extra plugins 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 for high dynamic range (HDR), using luminosity masks to add midtone contrast and definition, color separation tricks, removing unwanted objects, colors, and distractions, and making small, non-destructive warp adjustments to improve the flow and balance of the composition. 


A PSD file of the processed image is included to refer to and follow along with.

    I was in a rut with my processing. Key phrase here: "I was". This tutorial helped me get out that rut. Advanced techniques explained simply.

    I'm a big fan of Eric's tutorials. He has a wealth of knowledge to share and does so at an easy to follow pace. In this video he does a great job of demonstrating how to work with the natural light to boost the scene. In this tutorial I enjoyed seeing how he manages to masterfully balance the warm and cool tones across the image. I also learn a lot from Eric's use of luminosity masks. Using luminosity masks can be a bit confusing to begin with, but Eric manages to show just how easy it can be (and with incredible results). Looking forward to the next tutorial!

    As with Eric's other video's I have purchased I was not disappointed. I learn something new with each one the tutorials and this one was no different. I would highly recommend to any one thinking about purchasing. Relaxed pace and very easy to understand.
