Mastering Light & Shadow In ON1 Photo is presented in four parts: concepts, tools, technique, and start-to-finish examples. Each video lesson builds upon the last one to reinforce key concepts. Here are just a few of the topics I cover in the more than 5 hours of video instruction:

  • The reasons we shape light and shadow

  • Interpreting the histogram and how ON1's sliders affect the histogram

  • The differences between the various contrast controls, including Dynamic Contrast & the Tone Enhancer

  • How to use blending modes, options, and luminosity masks to target specific tonal regions in your photos

  • How the zone system fits in with ON1 Photo's tools

  • Masking with Effects and Local Adjustments

  • Finely controlled dodging & burning

  • And much, much more

The start-to-finish processing videos illustrate how the concepts, tools, and techniques are used together to transform your photos into rich, visual stories. Practice images are included so you can follow along.

The tools and techniques described using Photo RAW 2017 are 100% applicable to Photo RAW 2018. The course also has a special section explaining the new features of Photo RAW 2018 related to crafting light & shadow. Photo RAW 2018 gives us more control over our photos than ever before!
