SOME TECHNIQUES EXPLAINED

Creating Light Rays.

Creating Light Rays.

In reality, there is always a light ray present when the sun is above a contoured mountain horizon. The visibility however is depended on the angle of the sun with the mountains and the amount of dry particulates in the sky. This can be fog, mist, haze, dust,smoke, snow, and sand. Light rays look spectacular and it can help as a leading line towards the sun. Making these light rays more visible in Photoshop will add to the overall quality of the landscape image. With Max Rive's unique light ray technique, you can now easily create perfect looking light rays. 

With a physical neutral density filter, you will put a dark tinted filter in front of the lens. This will filter out light and makes the image look darker. With a graduated version, one side has the nd filter, and the other is clear, with a soft or hard graduation in between. With nowadays high dynamic range cameras, we often don't need this filter and a digital version can be applied instead. Max Rive is not only using digital ND-grads for the sky, but also for many other areas of the image. Creativity has no boundaries with the ND-grad camera RAW technique by Max Rive.

We all know that Instagram is by far the most popular online media platform to present our landscape photos on. Many landscape photographers even go as far to only take vertical photos to benefit from the vertical oriented Instagram presentation. Please watch and learn how Max is transforming a horizontal photo into a vertical one without making it look distorted, while maintaining an incredible composition. Other attention points include, the sharpness, the color profile, the image size, the brightness and the contrast. 

WHY MAX MADE THIS TUTORIAL

The technique I developed to create light rays worked so well, I decided to demonstrate it in depth during this Photoshop Light Rays tutorial.

I took this shot on the beautiful island of Tenerife. Here, I used a palm tree as a framing, to block the sun and to create a good-looking sun star. In post, I decided to enhance a few light rays, and included a few light rays as well. The technique I developed to create light rays worked so well, I decided to demonstrate it in depth during this Photoshop Light Rays tutorial. Of course there are plenty of other photoshop editing techniques, such as color painting on the foreground cacti, overexposure repair around the sun, the use of ND-grad filters in camera RAW, color balance and selective color, prepairing and editing for Instagram and more.

I was an admirer of Max's landscape images and the style of his post-processing so decided to give his Photoshop Light Rays Tutorial a go. Although not all of Max's creative editing techniques are appropriate to my images, I learned a huge amount. I know my Adobe Photoshop but certainly wouldn't class myself as an expert, but Max ran through everything at a comfortable pace to follow a long. If you wish to improve your processing techniques, I would certainly recommend this Photoshop Light Rays Tutorial!

Max Rive has truly set new standards in landscape photography with his Photoshop Light Rays Tutorial. The post-processing he applies follows an artistic style inspired by landscape painting. I have been doing photography and post-processing in Photoshop for many years, but Max's Photoshop Light Rays Tutorial have given me new insights and photoshop editing techniques. Unlike many other videos, the focus is not so much on technique, but follows a very easy to understand approach without having to master Photoshop in every detail.
