A Painless Masking Technique for Photoshop CS3

Posted by larrylohrman on October 31, 2007

The post I did on atticfire was extremely popular. I asked the guys at atticfire if they would talk about their shooting and work-flow process but not unexpectedly they declined to share any secrets with us.

There was a bunch of traffic on the atticfire post from a forum on CGarchitect (“A global community for Architectural Visualization Professionals”). Interestingly, the majority of the comments on PFRE, the PFRE flickr discussion and the CGarchitect discussion were that people felt that the atticfire images looked “over processed” yet there was more traffic on this post than almost any post I’ve done recently.

In the process of looking around on I found a very interesting masking tutorial by Scott Onstott called “Expanding Dynamic Range in Photoshop“. It requires CS3. This is another nifty way of creating a mask that can be used create a composite of two images, one exposed for the windows and one exposed for the interior. This technique is similar to the John Warner Blue Channel Masking technique that I demonstrated back in April of this year.
