Episode 010: Rescuing the chapel from the rescue

At the last show I made two blunders. I used an untested encoding and killed the sound for a lot of you and I used a layer mask with a lot of gray in it where it didn’t belong. So the sea didn’t look good.

In this episode I correct that mistake and add a bit of burning and dodging to get parts of the image darker or lighter. I don’t use the burn and dodge tool but use again a layer for better control. A bonus tip for the readers of the blog: If you set the foreground colour at start to medium gray and select then “foreground colour” as the layermask, you get around the step of filling the mask.


(I should have done a bit about the halo around the big rock…..)

This was the result of episode 9:


While this was encoding I worked again on the schedule. I am not sure to be able to put a show out on thursday. 🙁
