1. In my 28-minute HD tutorial I take you from “field to final,” to illustrate how to shoot, then process nightscape images taken by the light of the Moon, images that put the stars into a blue sky above well-lit landscapes.

    From a shoot in the field at Waterton Lakes National Park in June 2015 I explain:
    • what equipment, exposures and camera settings to use when shooting moonlit nightscapes
    • and provide tips on balancing the “Exposure Triangle"
    • and on achieving good depth of field.

    Back at the computer, using images I took that weekend at Waterton Lakes, I step you through processing an image from “raw to rave,” first demonstrating step-by-step how to develop raw files in Adobe Camera Raw (steps also applicable to Lightroom if you prefer).

    I then demonstrate how to go beyond Lightroom or Camera Raw to use Adobe Photoshop to further enhance a still image. I illustrate non-destructive editing techniques, including:
    • the use of smart filters,
    • adjustments layers,
    • and masks for the sky and ground.
