Ever since publishing the original tutorial on luminosity masks in 2006, I've been deeply and personally aware of the creative impact they can have on an individual's photography. Many people have written to tell me how useful these methods have been to them (see user comments below) as well as to ask for help learning these techniques and incorporating them in their workflow. Over the years I have offered actions, tutorials, and Photoshop extension panels to make the process easy. I truly believe luminosity masks can turn on creativity in any photographer. The latest offerings are below. They range from free to relatively inexpensive in price and work equally well on Mac and Windows computers. There are options specific for Photoshop CC, Photoshop CS6, and Photoshop Elements. All items are provided via a download link sent to the email you enter when purchasing.
I've also partnered with Sean Bagshaw who has created several excellent video series to explain luminosity masks and related techniques. His videos can be purchased below as well. Other international partners include André Distel in Germany, Antonio J. Prado in Spain, David Vercruysse in France, and Roy Yuan in China. The buttons below provide access to the panel along with the teaching materials they have developed.

The ultimate goal is to help you discover your own personal interpretation of the light and to find new ways to bring balance, creativity, and excitement to your photographs. Watch samples.
