Maximize Dynamic Range Using Local Adjustments

IF YOU ENJOY WHAT I'm DOING and would like to contribute


Maximize Dynamic Range Using Local Adjustments. In this video, I use local adjustments in Lightroom to maximize the dynamic range of RAW images. This can be done in various ways and my method helps draw the viewer into the subject of the photo by simply optimizing from the top and bottom of the image and perfecting the subject, all with local adjustments like gradient filter and the brush. Bringing out the maximum dynamic range in any photo requires that you are using 12 or 14 bit RAW imaging in your camera, jpeg will not allow as much processing because there isn't as much data to work with.
