It’s like Bob Ross for Photoshop…
Why did I created this luminosity mask video?
Because I feel like it was something you needed to know how to do. You don’t know what you don’t know and you would never look to google luminosity masks. I never did. Someone told me about them and that’s when I started to do my research. That’s also when I started practicing them everyday and incorporating them into my EVERY image. They are fantastic.
Luminosity masks help you refine and define your image. They help you create the mood and feelings you want to portray in your image. They are the magical creatures of the photoshop universe.
AND I WANT TO HELP YOU UNDERSTAND THEM AND USE THEM.
They can be kinda complicated. Forget luminosity masks, masking in general takes some know how. Don’t worry though. I start from the very beginning of masking and transition into luminosity masks. So what exactly are luminosity masks? Imagine being able to edit your image based on the values of light. Like if you had a really dark area of your picture that you wanted to tone down the darkness? You can do that with luminosity masks! Or if you wanted to adjust the color of the sky and nothing else? Luminosity masks are here to help save the day. Learn how to do this for just $10.
Warning: This video is intended for those of you who are already comfortable with photoshop. I go through all my settings and reasonings behind it pretty quickly. You should already know how to do the basics.
Programs I use:
– Photoshop CS6
For $10, you can expect:

Part 2: Creating your own Luminosity mask. This is where we start to get down and dirty

Total viewing time: 19:10 minutes
Luminosity masks are a straight up game changer. If you don’t know, you need to know.
In the end I hope you can create your own images you are proud of. Whether you want to break out of your artistic shell or just need a little inspiration, you will see that photography (especially post processing) is super fun. It will bring the things you see in real life into an image and convey the emotions and feelings you felt while capturing them. You will change your perspective about editing and help you convey emotions and feelings into your image. In the end, I hope you’ll say to yourself, “hot damn, I’m an artist!”
I must admit that I’m not a photoshop expert. There are so many different ways to do the same things in photoshop that it can be intimidating to learn them all. Here’s the way that I do it. Watch it and use the same processes on your own images. I’m sure you’ll also evolve from it in creating your own style. This is meant to be more inspiration than anything else.
