Title: Usage of lumi range masks for shadow WB tuning
Post by: BernardLanguillier on March 17, 2020, 04:59:41 am
Team,

I have recently started to use C1 Pro Luminosity masks to tune the white balance of shadows very easily, in particular for forest images where there is a complex mix of sunlit areas and shadow areas.

I was just curious whether many of you we doing this or not?

Thanks.

Cheers,
Bernard

Yes I am using that technique. I tend to use it in conjunction with the shadow colour balance wheel. I suppose that would be normal practice. I still prefer luminosity masks in PS for really fussy work.

I just wanted to add I. Case I created the wrong impression how enjoyable I find C1 to use. Something about the interface and the feel of the various sliders and tools that make the program a real pleasure.

Iím not really comfortable with the catalogue side of things but I use it anyway.
