About the Video
In Central Mongolia, I had the chance to shoot Orkhon Falls which is in the Orkhon Valley of the country. The falls are very cool, and on one of the nights we spent there, we got really amazing light. I thought that using Orkhon Falls would be the perfect example for a tutorial on how to blend two exposures together into a perfect exposure using Photoshop CC.
And though I used Photoshop CC in this tutorial, you can really use any version of Photoshop to make this happen. The process is really simple.
I shoot one image for the sky, and one image for the foreground. Then, I place one image on top of the other and use the gradient tool to reveal the bottom layer. It makes for a nice smooth transition between the layers. I think use a brush tool to make sure the layers are even and that there are no dark spots in my blended exposure.
I know my method isn't the most intricate, but if you're like me, you don't really want to waste too much time per image. This method of blending two images into one for a perfect exposure using layer masks, is about as quick as it gets.
