Hey @David_Kingham I had some questions after watching the Understanding Colors and Tones videos. First of all, this may be the most impactful set of video’s I’ve watched. I have messed around with processing for about 6 months now and I learned more in this two hours than any time spent on YouTube etc. So here we go…
Do you consider these adjustments to be just the beginning of your editing process or is this often all that you do? If you use Photoshop regularly, do you open the file as a smart object to have access back to that raw data or just open as a file?
I have been learning a lot about luminosity masks by watching videos from Sean Bagshaw. Do you see this as a replacement for luminosity masks or do you still use them, if so, how?
Do you find that the Adobe Camera Raw Filter (not actual Camera Raw) in Photoshop is similarly effective? Obviously you want things to be right in Lightroom because you still have the raw data, but if you go to PS and need to make an adjustment, does this seem to work well?
Do you find that this way of editing changes the way you shoot in the field? Do you still expose to the right? What about high dynamic range scenes, do you bracket? Do you blend?
Your answers will probably lead to more questions, and the more I think about/watch these the more questions I will have! Really though, this is the best money I have spent on a tutorial! The amount of data that becomes available is mind blowing.
