In my latest Walt Disney World photo editing video I take you into Adobe Photoshop and show you how to blend multiple bracketed exposures using luminosity masks. This is my favorite way for blending multiple exposures and has replaced HDR programs such as Photomatix in my workflow. After watching this video you should be able to blend your bracketed photos using Adobe Photoshop more realistically and seamlessly. Please leave your comments and feedback or send me a link to your Disney World photos edited using these techniques.
Today’s shot of Expedition Everest kinda follows the same theme as yesterday. It’s an old shot that I overlooked until now when I decided I could probably make something work with it. This shot is actually all the way back to 2011 when I was still shooting the D7000. That’s 4 years from the time I shot it til I actually bothered to do anything with it. Hopefully it was worth the wait. Enjoy.
Today’s shot is another older shot of Cinderella Castle, this time from 2012. I am finding a lot of these older shots I passed over originally are sunset or blue hour shots. I figure this is probably because I used to avoid editing them as I wasn’t happy with the results but in the past year or so I’ve become much more proficient at editing these types of shots. As such I’ve been able to finally realize the potential a lot of these abandoned shots had. Enjoy.
I’m really quite pleased with how this shot turned out. You’ve got the wonderful Spaceship Earth, stars in the sky, and “stars” on the ground. I hope you enjoy.
Wow, I’m already up to Episode 9 in my Disney Photo editing series. This week I teach you how to edit your fireworks photos using a shot from Illuminations. Follow along as I show you techniques in Lightroom and Photoshop to make your fireworks photos look amazing.
A big theme for my shooting last trip was compression. I shot with the Nikon 70-200 2.8 ALOT and played around with compressing spaces often as opposed to using it just to zoom in on stuff. The result is some of my favorite pictures ever came from my last trip. I look forward to trying out more new things on my next Disney trip. Enjoy.
Also I have started a newsletter that will be a nice monthly (biweekly?) summary of my photos and videos along with some extras. If you’d like to receive that you can sign up using the subscribe panel on the right.

Yet another shot I found lurking in my library just waiting to get out. I posted another shot from this series at Liberty Square but it was a tight telephoto shot on the castle. Originally I thought I preferred that shot, but now I think I like this one more. Really I guess I’m just splitting hairs as I think they are both nice. I hope you enjoy this one and have a great weekend!

I was going through my library to see if I could find something worthwhile to edit that I hadn’t processed yet. I stumbled across this shot and was honestly kinda shocked I hadn’t processed it yet. A perfectly good Cinderella Castle sunset shot completely untouched? I’ll take it, and I have to say this is has ended up being one of my favorite castle sunset shots I’ve done to date. I hope you like it too. Enjoy.
