Luminosity Masks are a unique tool that allow you to target tone, color, and contrast adjustments to specific tone ranges in your image. Because luminosity masks are unique to each photograph, they allow your adjustments to blend in perfectly every time.
In this class, I’ll show you how to get creative with advanced luminosity masking techniques using my custom actions. You’ll learn curves adjustments, layer blending mode options, and how to work with zone masks to improve your tricky images.
It’s quick and easy if your camera offers a DST function
Daylight Savings Time (DST) ended in North America on Sunday, November 3rd. That means, we’re back on Standard Time until March 8th, 2020. You probably forgot to change the clock on your camera, though!
Having the correct date and time set in your camera is important because the time stamp that’s embedded in your digital images can be used for record-keeping, and to sync up with GPS track logs.
Most cameras today offer an easy way to set the clock for Daylight Savings Time
First, find the “Time and Date” menu item in your camera’s settings. Next, see if there is a Daylight Savings or “DST” option. If so, simply set it to OFF and your camera’s clock will “fall back” one hour. If it was already set to OFF, then you’ll need to manually adjust the camera clock. In spring, when DST returns, change the DST setting to ON.
Sometimes, you don’t need to execute technical perfection to create unique photos with impact. Today we explore ways in which you can use creative techniques that don’t require maximum resolution or perfect exposure. Thanks to listener Mark Finney for the topic suggestion!
