I would assume this question has been asked before, so if there is a thread with this information, please guide me to it.
After having spent the past 10-years plus hiring post-processing / retouchers to do all my digital processing, I have started to do it on my own. I am now at the point where I understand enough of Photoshop CC to realize my work needs to use luminosity masks. And, that being written, I would like to know which of the “famous” expert’s Action you think is best. I am aware of the 3 “usual suspects”, and have watched their YouTube videos.
Now, as always with my posts, I find it necessary to over explain myself, so as to cut down on the snarky responses, as well as eliminate as many questions as possible with regards to what I am looking for. So here goes…
I am looking for recommendations on luminosity masking Actions, and not a link to how to create channels & layers, I want an automated process.
I am using Photoshop CC, and Capture One. Price is not an issue. Complexity of the Actions are not an issue, as long as there is not significant learning curve. I am a landscape photographer, and I do not photograph people. My camera gear is Phase One digital backs, Sony A7S, and Nikon D3x.
Thanks for your assistance.
