tutorial: Sky Rescue
exposed sky, perfectly exposed ground
a step-by-step video tutorial recorded in HD that I've put
together to show you how to 'rescue' a blown sky.
shows a unique method for combining two shots, one exposed for the sky
and one exposed for the ground... so that you end up with the best
bits from both in one image in a seamless transition. Perfect!
Getting the shots to start with
As I've mentioned before in various places on
this site and on my blog, I always shoot in RAW (see
an explanation of RAW). So getting the two exposures for me
is easy ...from the one RAW
shot I create the one exposed for the sky and
the one exposed for the ground. Easy peasy :)
If you don't have a RAW mode on your camera, you can
- shoot hand-held, using automatic
bracketing and being very sure to not move between shots
- or you can use
a tripod to get both exposures that way.
However you get the two shots, they're your starting point for the
Play the video tutorial...
So without further ado, play away and watch the
you've found the vidoe tutorial to be quick and simple to
follow and the technique worthy of adding to your kitbag of essentials!
