Luminosity Masks in Photoshop
24th September 2020

I wrote about Luminosity Masks in Photoshop already on this blog. It’s a very powerful technique I use in my landscape and cityscape photography. I find it much more efficacious than letting my camera or software randomly decide what a good HDR photo is. Yes, it may take a bit longer. But the results a far more satisfactory.

The measures to fight coronavirus have imposed restrictions on travel, both internally and between countries. And therefore, many places now look like scenes from an apocalyptic Hollywood film. Particularly in those areas where flocks of tourists usually cram every empty corner, the view is very much on the eerie side....

In this blog, I start disclosing my editing workflow, and the first topic I’d like to introduce is Luminosity Masks. Luminosity Masks are something you might have heard before, mostly if you shoot Landscape/Cityscape. In a nutshell, they are selections based on tones that allow for refined adjustments. In their basic form, they broadly target highlights and/or shadows. But they can be further refined to include mid-tones or narrow down an image’s...
