In this final chapter of Tutorial 1 we finish off our image of Weston-super-mare with a vignette, some extra steps to even up the light in the sky and add some final brightness and contrast adjustments.
In today's episode we get down to the fun part of dodging and burning our image to add shape and direct the eye of the viewer. So far we've been giving ourselves the solid foundation we need to bring the image together. Now we add expression by painting with light.
This time on Tutorial 1 we take the same approach we did to the ground portion and apply it to the sky. Once again we're bringing the levels closer together by using lightening and darkening layers with layer masks.
In chapter 4 of Tutorial 1 we take a look at how the ground portion of the image was edited to bring the tones together with the sky and add focus and detail using darkening and lightening layers with layer masks.
Chapter 3 of our re-encoded and re-released Tutorial 1. This episode covers black and white conversion with a number of techniques for bringing out the details in your picture then finishes up with the best B&W conversion technique (at the time), the channel mixer. Please remember this tutorial was recorded when Photoshop CS2 was the latest version. This was before Lightroom and Photoshop's black and white adjustment filter existed.
