In this Photoshop retouch tutorial, we’ll learn how to create Manual Exposures and Digital Blending Technique for Amazing Landscapes with just one single JPEG image.

first we create overexposed & underexposed image from the base photo

Duplicate background layer. we use this tO enhance LIGHT INFORMATION DETAIL

from the Image menu. Select “Apply Image”

we are darkening the image, specifically targeting the highlight detail with in the image.

Change the blending mode in the Apply Image dialogue box to Multiply.

again Duplicate background layer. we use this tO enhance DARK INFORMATION DETAIL

we are lightening the image, targeting the shadows in the image.

Change the blending mode in the Apply Image dialogue box to Screen.

now blending exposures with the help of channels & based on luminosity values

Open the Channels Palette and check individual channels.

select channel which has detail of the contrast areas. in this case red channel has better overall darker areas compared to green and blue channels

ctrl + click on layer thumb, to select. go back to layer palette and add layer mask to shadows layer.

similarly select channel which has better light areas. in this case blue channel is has better overall light areas compared to red and blue channels

ctrl + click on layer thumb, to select. go back to layer palette and add layer mask to highlight layer

Create a new layer from all the visible layers by pressing, Ctrl + Shift + Alt + E

lets do some basic adjustments for highlights, shadows & coloring in camera raw

we applied the Camera Raw Filter to a Smart Object, it was added as a fully editable Smart Filter.

we can go back and re-edit any of the settings for the effect

waterfall has less lighting, i want it look like milky white & bright

goto channels and select light areas

create blank layer and paint with white

add mask to the layer and “apply image” to mask

waterfall lighting is too intense, lets reduce it with opacity.
