The sky is arguably one of the most important elements in most landscape photos. But when your images come straight out of your camera, the sky is often very dull even though you have clouds and nice structures that would really make your final image pop.
In this video tutorial, I’m going to show you how to bring out the sky in your images with Aurora HDR without overdoing it and without creating a horrible HDR look. It is very easy to get this wrong, and I’ll show you what it takes to strike the right balance and retain full control at all times.
In a Nutshell…
We will add just about every type of details to the sky available in Aurora HDR, but we’ll take care that the mix is right. By putting those adjustments onto their own layer in Aurora HDR, we can nicely isolate them from the rest of the adjustments and we’re able to control the opacity of the sky adjustments at the end.
