Start to Finish: “Avalon”

After numerous questions about how I handle those complex blends, it's finally time to release the behind-the-scenes look at this epic mountainscape from the Dolomites.

This is two hours’ worth of processing in Lightroom and Photoshop, and it includes my entire workflow that's free of purist moral bounds. You will get to see how I combine many images into one piece of landscape art.

Focus Stacking, Perspective Blending, Color Dodging and Lighting Effects; it's all included.

Also Available: Glowing Mushroom Processing!

This premium video is full of annotations to explain what you're seeing on screen. There are two parts to this silent video. In the first part, we'll take a rather simple, single mushroom and illuminate it with LED. The challenge here is to combine exposures seamlessly, without showing directly what we've done. The second part is more complex. We take the same technique and apply it to multiple mushrooms in one frame. Obviously, this is hard to do well and requires a great deal of patience in the field as well as in post-processing.


This video includes an in-depth article about what you need to do in the field in order to get the results that you're after. Special attention goes out to get that dark mood that's so prevalent in any of my works.

Magic Mushroom Processing
35.00 45.00

Watch me edit both “A Trip to the Forest (raw only)” and “The Magic Mushroom (in full)”. This video is exactly what it says; an easy to follow, silent editing tutorial that shows my entire workflow. There is no sound. You will only be able to watch me edit. Even with basic knowledge of Photoshop, you will easily pick up on what I do.

*New in this video are the added annotations to help clarify some of the thoughts behind what you see.

Note that for each purchase you will be downloading a "read me" document which contains a secure download link to the video. The videos are very large (well over 2GB), so I can't host it at my website. I'm sorry for the inconvenience, but this will ensure a good enough playback quality for you to follow along with the provided PSD.
