Star Photography tutorial in Adobe Lightroom, Milky Way Photoshop Tutorial, Astrophotography Panorama Stitching and Image Stacking by Michael Shainblum Photography
In this hour-long Star Photography Processing Tutorial, you will learn some of my favorite techniques for editing the Milky Way. I also talk about shooting techniques I use in Astrophotography and Milky Way Photography. Techniques include image stacking, basic photo blending, Lightroom panorama stitching, correcting panorama distortion in Photoshop, processing single frames in Lightroom and dodging/burning the Milky Way in Photoshop. Astrophotography can seem a bit daunting at first and processing these files can be a lot of fun with a little understanding.
Adobe Lightroom (latest version needed for panorama stitching only)
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
- Image Stacking (to reduce noise)
- Lightroom Stitching Panoramas
- Correcting Panorama distortion in Photoshop
- Milky Way editing single RAW files in Lightroom
- Processing a single frame in Lightroom and Photoshop
Included in this milky way editing tutorial zip file you will find two RAW files for technique 4 and 5. You can follow along using the RAW files. The first part of the course (techniques 1-3) does NOT have RAW files provided. These are the techniques I apply to my own images when I get home from a shoot. However, there is an endless possibilities too processing astrophotography. I always encourage students to learn techniques from as many people as possible.
