With the help of Luminance Masks you can make subtle, selective changes to your images without affecting, and possibly degrading the entire picture.
Whether it is sharpening, saturation, detail enhancement, noise reduction, ND effect. Effectively everything you want to change can (should) be applied only where it is really needed. In this video I will show you how.
In this 7:30 min long video I demonstrate the power of masks in Photoshop. The goal is to add punch to the image without overdoing. (In this example mainly on the greens) “Maximum natural” is my Mantra.
