One of the most important aspects in any photo after subject and composition is the mood – and one of the best ways to make a certain mood visible in the digital darkroom is by showing the direction of light. In this ‘’Dolomites’’ video you can expect an in-depth demonstration how to create light from the side. This will be done both in Camera Raw and in Photoshop. The techniques Max Rive uses are both unique and simpler than the usual technique used to create this effect.

Let's make a positive impact

CLOSE

With the rapidly growing world population and the way we often priorities our economies at the cost of our natural world – making a positive impact while running a business is more important than ever before.

From every order made on this website, x amount will go to the organization Ecologi. They will plant 7 trees in designated lands to grow trees.

You can access my tree status page in the banner on the bottom of this page. This page will be updated every 24 hours. On a later stage a special page with more info on this and more projects will be opened – stay tuned!

ESSENTIAL INVESTMENT

These Processing Instructional tutorials do NOT use the same processing techniques you see among all 99,9% of landscape photographers. There is absolutely nothing wrong with these – they work and can give incredible results. But after you’ve seen one – others will feel the same. The processing tutorials and techniques on this page from Landscape Photographer of the year Max Rive are different. Max Rive is an autodidact – just like he can find his own locations and unique compositions – he developed his own processing style with over 7300 hours of processing. Max Rive’s advice: ‘’If you are experienced with both photography and post processing, you don’t have to replace your current processing techniques but you can use my techniques to upgrade yours and to get new insights in my creative workflow’’.

Post processing plays a big part in today’s landscape photography. A good processed photo taken with a simple compact can look more impressive than a poorly processed photo taken with a high end DSLR. These instructional videos will bring your post processing skills to the next level – and will outvalue any other investment you can make to improve your photography. Words from Max Rive: ‘’If I had to choose between keeping my current camera but lose all my processing knowledge or keeping all my processing knowledge but use my first compact camera, I would always choose to keep my processing knowledge. In fact, I would not even be sure if people would notice when I change my camera when posting photos on the internet. Investing in your post processing is indeed by far the best investment you can make’’.

Max Rive: ‘’One day I received an email from someone who had bought my videos. He complemented me with the unique processing techniques he learned from it and how it has changed his workflow completely. Thankfully, I receive these compliments many times though this one is worth mentioning because at first, he was not all that enthusiastic. He expected advanced techniques and did not find them that advanced at first sight. Let me tell you why he changed completely in his opinion about my processing techniques. The more technical they get, the more they will distract you from your creativity. Compare it with an artist making a painting. The actual painting itself is nothing more than holding a brush and making strokes on a canvas. Would a painter benefit if this simple process would be made overly complicated? This is exactly how the common post processing techniques are done. They are unnecessary complicated. My techniques do not require much technical knowledge, nor are they difficult to learn and can create the most impressive processing results.’’
