Free luminosity masking course

7 days, 7 compact lessons

As almost everybody, I am a self-taught photographer, and while learning images post-processing have probably stepped on all kinds of rakes. Started with RAW converters, then was Photomatix and other HDR software, low quality panoramas - basically I was learning all I could.

The biggest step forward was a lesson on luminosity masks that I bought once. Even though all the masks were built manually without the luminosity masking panel help, only with luminosity masks I finally started getting accurately processed images and naturally looking exposure blends.

My free luminosity masking course will help also you make this big step forward.
