Welcome to your first lesson on luminosity masks!

A few weeks ago I asked what YOU wanted to learn about luminosity masks the most. I received a TON of feedback (literally hundreds of emails), which is fantastic...the more, the better!

There were some VERY interesting responses, so thank you for taking the time to let me know what your biggest challenges with luminosity masks it gave me great ideas for this new mini-course that I think you are going to love.

Let's get right to it with your first lesson, which answers one of the most popular questions I received:

What are luminosity masks and how will they help my workflow in Photoshop?

One of the biggest challenges that photographers encounter when it comes to luminosity masks is that they simply don't know what they are or how they function...and more importantly, how exactly they can enhance your workflow.

Why invest time into learning luminosity masks when you can't even see the benefits?

In your first video lesson here, you will learn:

  • What a luminosity mask is and how Photoshop creates them.
  • The specific strengths of luminosity masks and how they improve the quality of your processing.
  • How to easily and instantly apply luminosity masks to your own images.

It all comes down to this: when you know how luminosity masks work and what they are particularly good at, you’re already WAY ahead of the learning curve.

I hope you find this lesson helpful and stay tuned for Lesson #2 coming your way shortly!
