... so you can accurately edit separate parts of a photo (like shadows and highlights) selectively, without affecting other parts and without having to become an expert at the advanced lengthy techniques this usually requires?
And just how useful would it be for you if...
so you can now get the full benefits of the technique without having to go through all the tedious manual processes that are confusing and easy to forget if you don't use them all the time?
I'm about to share with you...
How to create the best, professional looking, striking and attractive landscape photos in Photoshop without spending longer than you want to learn and use the lengthy and tedious advanced techniques this would normally require.
(This is your secret weapon to bulldozing through the confusing and time consuming processes that are usually required to create outstanding images in Photoshop)
The #1 Counter-productive thing you must STOP doing if you want to get great results, fast...
My step-by-step process to consistently high-quality landscapes that have the WOW factor….
Now before moving forward, it’s key that you pay really close attention to what I’m going to share with you on this page.
It could mean the difference between truly taking your photography to the next level or continuing to spend more time than you really want in front of the computer, only to create results you’re not happy with ...
... Because I’m going to be giving you some essential ingredients here that you’ll be able to put into action right away.
Perhaps you feel like you’ve tried it all, when it comes to developing a fast and efficient workflow and for one reason or another, you’re just not producing the best looking landscapes you know you’re capable of.
You’ve likely been disappointed that no matter how much you try to figure out the advanced techniques you know are important, it always seems to be too complicated.
Well, I’m going to share with you the tested and proven system I have developed to create the best looking landscapes with Impact in Photoshop, whilst making the whole step by step process faster and easier than ever.
The truth is…
I wasn’t always a Photoshop expert...
In fact, the first time I started using photoshop to process my own photos, I failed miserably and couldn’t seem to piece together any of the random tips and techniques I was learning into something that actually helped me.
Despite what some people think, I haven’t always been able to create great images.
I wasn’t born a natural “creative person”
After investing in my first camera and using it for a while, I couldn’t understand why everyone else’s photos seemed to have so much vibrance and flair and mine just fell flat.
Despite knowing what I know now, I can understand how frustrating it might be to produce photos that just don’t live up to the beauty of the scene you witnessed when you clicked the shutter.
Luckily for me, through a lot of trial and error over the years, I’ve developed a set of techniques and strategies that will bring even the most dull, flat and boring RAW files to life.
This is the system I’ve used to create consistently eye-catching photos while retaining complete and predictable control over how they turn out.
And now this is the system that I’ve condensed into a process that makes it infinitely easier to use for even the most beginner level photoshop users.
Picture in your mind…
You bring up a RAW file in photoshop and you know with confidence that you have all the tools and techniques under your belt - a system - to turn it into a finished image that your friends, family and photographer buddies will truly admire and will wish they’d taken themselves!
Typically, this is the root cause of the issues you face today.
If you’re reading this, it’s likely because you’ve been at this a while and you’re determined to finally get the best out of your images.
But like many of my students, you've been previously conditioned to believe that you have to be some kind of computer whiz-kid to be able to use the advanced Photoshop techniques the pro's use nowadays...
Or you’ve been made to feel like you’re getting into the game too late to learn these newfangled processes that seem too complicated.
However, this couldn’t be further from the truth...
Sure, it’s great for the photographers out there already getting the results you want to be getting and who keep a tight grip on their secrets because they want you to give up before you try, before you realise how easy it can be.
However this belief absolutely crushing for someone like you who is actually trying to reach their true potential as a photographer.
If you do, you'll more than likely continue to be left unfulfilled by your photography.
Luckily, as of right now you won’t fall victim to this any longer and by refusing to believe the best results in Photoshop are too difficult and time-consuming to achieve, you’ll be that much closer to creating photographs you’re truly proud of.
How amazing it would be...
...to have access to the exact strategies, tips, and tactics that would virtually ensure your success, and ultimately give you the ability to churn out massively improved photos every single time
quicker and more efficiently than ever before?
This is exactly what I’ve done for myself...
It's what I’ve done for clients...
And it is what I can do for you
As promised, I want to share some of my strategies with you today.
Strategies that will improve your entire Photoshop workflow and have you knocking out portfolio quality images faster than you ever thought possible...
You must stop processing your images willy nilly.
In other words, you can't continue to process your images without a plan from the start.
You need to start using a structured workflow that can produce consistent results every time you work through it.
Because only when you have a repeatable structure in place will you be able to pinpoint the parts that need improving the most and then be able to see the direct results when you tinker with the techniques.
You can’t change 10 things at once and expect to know which of those 10 things was responsible for an image turning out better or worse than the last.
You’ll just end up wasting even more time in Photoshop later trying to recreate past successes but not knowing exactly how you did it before.
Take my 6 Stage Workflow for example.
If you break everything you do in Photoshop down into its individual components and slot them into this framework, then it will give structure to your entire process.
Then you can tweak the individual techniques one at a time at each stage to test their impact on the overall outcome.
Here’s a quick overview of the 6 stage workflow so you can think about how what you’re doing now fits into this “skeleton” structure.
Stage 1: Import & RAW File Preparation
This initial stage of the process involves the basic calibration and fixes to your RAW files before you load them into Photoshop (so, either in Lightroom or ACR). This covers things like camera profile calibration, white balance, lens distortion, noise reduction and so on.
Stage 2: Exposure Balancing
The main goal of stage 2 is to create an even exposure by recovering any under-exposed shadows and over-exposed highlights. If you're blending bracketed exposures, this is where you do it.
Stage 3: Colour Correction & Calibration
Here's where you set the tone for the colours in your image. Any colour corrections or adjustments (creative or natural) happen here at stage 3 of the workflow.
Stage 4: Add Contrast & Drama
Here's where we start making our images POP! It's also where most of the creativity happens in this process.
There are a million and one individual methods and techniques out there that you can use to meet the goals that are the purpose of stage 4, but whatever techniques you end up using, make sure you always keep this simple rule in mind:
Many subtle changes trump fewer big changes. Every. Single. Time.
Stage 5: Enhance & Embellish
When you reach this stage in the work ow then your image is probably around 90- 95% complete.
However, the extra 5-10% that you are about to do now is what's going to add 50% to the “finished-ness”.
Things like dodging and burning to make objects stand out more, adding micro and macro contrast adjustments, and making finishing touches like cleaning dust spots etc are all filed under stage 5.
Stage 6: RSE
Once your masterpiece is complete, you have just one more step before sharing it with the world...
Resize, Sharpen, and Export. In that order.
Just by taking this outline of a workflow and slotting into it all of the separate individual edit’s you’re already making when you process your landscapes, you’ll automatically create a high level of consistency to your images.
Remember: Consistency comes first.
Once you have consistency, then you can work on improving and tweaking little bits one by one to test their effects on the results.
Learning how to use luminosity masking quickly and effectively is the cornerstone of my own photoshop workflow and it’s ALWAYS the difference between top quality results and ho-hum efforts.
My Luminosity Masking Mastery course is my best selling course with over 3947 photographers having taken it so far at the time of publishing this page.
Now I will be honest with you… Luminosity Masking IS an advanced technique and it does take some dedication to truly master the manual way of using it.
The course has been an incredibly valuable resource for those who’ve used it to its fullest...
But the good news is that there is now an easier way to make full use of luminosity masking without having to worry about the time consuming and sometimes confusing manual techniques.
Stay tuned and I’ll tell you about that in just a minute.
First though, let me just show you some of the benefits of using luminosity masking in your workflow:
You need to be able to take even the most complicated and cumbersome techniques, and run them through as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Otherwise you’ll spend longer than necessary processing each and every photo.
You need to be proficient and speedy when it comes to applying these advanced techniques that everyone else is using.
One way to do this is to become so well-practiced and fast at creating luminosity masks, that it becomes automatic and simple for you to perform these complicated processes, almost like muscle-memory.
You don’t have to think about how to make the precise selection you need, you just flip over to the channels panel and it instinctively just happens.
Alternatively, the act of simplifying might mean finding or creating your own set of Photoshop actions that take the steps you’re already doing in Photoshop, and making them happen in a couple of simple clicks.
Important: This does NOT mean use Automated Plugins to do your processing for you. They take away all control from your processing and generally provide “Pot Luck” results.
I’m talking about creating shortcuts for the things you already do (or are going to learn to do) in Photoshop.
Even advanced techniques like Luminosity Masking can be made easier and simpler without losing their effectiveness by consolidating many of the functions for selecting clean and accurate luminosity masks into a handful of actions or buttons.
I'm Steve Arnold and I’ve taught thousands of photographers around the world how to improve their Photoshop workflow and create stunning Landscape Photos.
I’m also the creator of the...
The ONLY Photoshop panel on the market that has been designed to make luminosity masking EASIER and FASTER whilst fitting in perfectly with a well thought out processing workflow at the same time.
The Panel makes the time consuming, complicated process of creating clean, precise luminosity masks as easy as just a few clicks of the mouse.
This system boils down the most advanced and convoluted photoshop techniques to being easy as pie for even beginner photoshop users to perform.
So, if you really want to:
Then you have FOUND what you're looking for!
The Luminosity Masking Panel has been tested and proven to work. If you’re looking to experience these results for yourself, then this is for you.
As you might imagine...
The Luminosity Masking Panel has been cleverly designed with you in mind…
The Luminosity Masking Panel is a system that makes advanced Photoshop techniques fast and easy to learn and use.
This is the direct result of years of study and years of digging through the trenches to find what REALLY works, and them boiling all that down to a simple Panel to make the whole thing easy and fast for every level of Photoshop user.
Perhaps the very best thing about it is that it:
