Blending Multiple Exposures With Lightroom and Photoshop

June 12th, 2013

Serge Ramelli has a new video that illustrates how to manually blend multiple images in Photoshop. The photos he’s using aren’t real estate type photos but don’t pay any attention to that. Look at his technique and workflow that he’s using.

This technique (multi-image blending) is used by some real estate photographers extensively to deal with window issues, light areas independently, replace skies and to just deal with problems in general. But be careful, this can suck up a lot of time!

The interesting variation that Serge adds to the workflow in this tutorial is starting with the two layers you are going to blend in Lightroom, making adjustments in Lightroom (because most adjustments are just easier there) before sending the two images to Photoshop as layers.

  • Brilliant, thanks for sharing Serge!

  • Whether or not you use HDR eventually you will need to master this skill to improve your results. We use this method for twilight shots. However be prepared to charge more for your time because it can take substantially longer to complete than the regular fusion method. Results are worth the effort

  • Loved this video – thank you for posting it and now I am watching all of Serge’s Videos on his YouTube channel! Thanks! I love learning more about photography and editing!
