Finding Hidden Exposures in Photoshop
It is likely that your camera is capturing more information than you can easily see. Finding and bringing out this information is a great way to bring your image to life and add a lot of depth.
In today’s episode we start off with an image that has been resized for the web and saved as a .jpg. It is a very small and compressed image yet we are still able to bring out a ton of detail.
If we can bring this much detail from a 74kb JPEG, imagine what you can do with a RAW file!
Here are some of the tools we use:
- Apply Image – The key to exposure blending in Photoshop. Apply image will allow you to target the highlights or the shadows of an image
- Curves – One of the most powerful tools in Photoshop, curves is your best friend in bringing out detail in exposure.
