Playing with Luminosity Masks

This is not a tutorial. I’m not good enough to be teaching anyone else.

I went to my alma mater last weekend and I just so happen to have my camera with me. Since it’s been raining constantly, I’m starting to reminisce of drier days.

I’ve always had a hard time finding time to post-process my photos after taking them but I finally got around to looking at these photos.

Because of the huge contrast of the foreground, midground and the skies, it’s so easy for the sky to get over exposed.

I shot these in raw so luckily I had enough to work with in Photoshop and I’ve recently started adding luminosity masks into my workflow.

By using the luminosity masks to quickly isolate the highlights, it makes it easier to change the overall mood of the photo.

It helped me bring out the clouds that were looming over the library building.
