Misty Mountain Processing: "Where His Ravens Fly"


Watch me edit “Where His Ravens Fly”. This video is exactly what it says; an easy to follow, silent editing tutorial that shows my entire workflow. There is no sound. You will only be able to watch me edit. Even with basic knowledge of Photoshop, you will easily pick up on what I do.

There's even a PSD included so you can follow along with the video.

    It’s an hour worth of processing, so my recommendation would be to take the time and pick apart what’s going on. This is my entire workflow for a misty mountain shot. Subjects covered:

    1. Raw pre-processing
    2. Highlight recovery
    3. Composition considerations
    4. Recovering high contrast and out-of-focus foreground subjects like birds
    5. Colour corrections
    6. Creating depth with local clarity adjustments
    7. Adding highlights (dodge)
    8. Luminosity Processing and restricting your adjustments to the brightest parts
    9. Orton effect (Creating a dreamy look)
    10. Sunlight effects while retaining detail
    11. Emphasizing mood without sacrificing texture
    12. Final adjustments
    13. Preparing to export for the web
