While in Arizona I shared a house with Greg Benz, the creator of Lumenzia. Lumenzia creates precise lumenosity masks so that you can apply edits to areas that were impossible to isolate in Lightroom and Photoshop.
I told Greg I thought his software was witchcraft and that I would likely not understand it. But after one night playing around, I now understand the power of the lumenosity mask.
This is an extreme example. I thought this photo had real potential however the foreground cactus was so dark, I could not isolate it from the sky to increase exposure. I tried in Lightroom but the end result left dark halos around the cactus that looked unappealing. However, I was able to isolate just the foreground cactus using Lumenzia to create this finished photo.
I’m still brand new to using lumenosity masks but if you are interested in a challenge and want to push your editing and creativity to the stratosphere, check it out!
