Learn Precise Luminosity Masking Adjustments

With the following videos, you will learn precise luminosity masking adjustments. In post-processing, we always need some masking, although Lightroom only offers some basic masking options. Therefore we could not apply more precise ones. That’s when precise luminosity masking adjustments come very handy.

In the following videos, Sean Bagshaw explains luminosity masking through one of his landscape pictures. It was a huge help for me when I was learning post-processing with luminosity masking. So I highly recommend watching his videos.
