Do you want to learn these advanced functions in Affinity Photo?
In this course, we dig into the world of exposure blending using both "Photoshop-like" luminosity masks and Affinity Photos blend ranges for blending exposures.
Exposure Blending with Luminosity Mask in Affinity Photo
If you previously used Photoshop, you will likely have felt the hype around using luminosity masks. Affinity Photo chose another approach using blend ranges, but that doesn't mean that you cannot create luminosity masks in Affinity Photo.
In this video course, I will show you the exact steps to follow and how to use them for exposure blending afterwards.

Exposure Blending with Blend Ranges in Affinity Photo
You also learn to blend two exposures using blend ranges in a tricky case example and combine blend ranges with other masking techniques to refine the exposure blend.

Edit Wildlife Photos
I share my process and thoughts about editing wildlife photos including using Nik Collections Color Efex Pro as a way of enhancing your photos (which is optional, of course).
For wildlife photos, I usually use a fairly simple process, but paying attention to finishing touches can lift your photos from good to great.

About the Instructor
I have been using Affinity Photo for my nature and landscape photography for years. Before Affinity Photo, I used Photoshop, which I still use for some jobs that require it. Switching between these two apps enables me to highlight the differences and where Affinity Photo shines. I have a straightforward and concise teaching style and avoids rambling off for hours. Your time is precious, and I don't waste it by showing you a lot of techniques that are not relevant to your photography.
Here are answers to some frequently asked questions:
What version of Affinity Photo is this course for?
The advanced course is made for Affinity Photo v. 1.8.
The changes in version 2.0 are minor, when I take into consideration what features I use in my workflow and the way most photographers would process wildlife, macro, or landscape photos. Therefore, the course is not updated for version 2.
