"Premium Processing" Series

The Premium Processing series features annotated videos, where I show you two different editing sessions. While showing you exactly how I process my images from start to finish, the annotations explain some of the thoughts behind the edits. The video is the "how" and the captions are the "why". In these silent videos, we take a raw photo and take it to a great image through Lightroom and Photoshop. Though there is no sound, everyone can follow along. On top of all this, PSD as well as DNG files are included for both images!

Twilight Seascapes

One of my favorite places to shoot seascapes is the Icelandic beach near Vik. With its black sand and iconic seastacks of Reynisdrangar, this place is straight out of the movies. In fact, its featured in more than one, including the History Channel's hit-series Vikings.

"Twilight Trolls" was shot well before sunrise, in the gloomy blue hour at twilight - rendering this scene perfect for a fine-art type of processing.

Of course, not everyone can make it to Iceland's well-photographed beach. It's exactly why I've also included the entire post-processing workflow of my work called "Fate". This was shot a non-descript beach in the Netherlands, near my home. The idea of including this one is to teach you that you don't have to travel to the far corners of civilization and can create fascinating art everywhere in the world.

So how do you maximize contrast while keeping noise to a minimum? And how do you enhance the Milky Way without the whole image feeling unnatural and over the top?

Finding out the process of Nightscape editing for yourself can be time consuming, because there are so many variables. In this video, I show you my workflow which I've perfected from years of nightscape photography and working with professionals in the field.

    Note that you will be downloading a "read me" document which contains a secure download link to the video. The video is very large (over 3GB), so I can't host it at my website. I'm sorry for the inconvenience, but this will ensure a good enough playback quality for you to follow along with the provided PSD.
