Hands-on Photo Tip: Single Exposure Blending

In this Hands-on Photo Tip, I will show you how to develop two separate versions of a single RAW image file and blend them together in Photoshop.

In this way, you can work on the different regions of your image separately which gives you much more flexibility for optimizing the overall photo.
