From Day Into Night

What a difference a day makes!! While this may look complicated it really is not difficult to do. The hardest part for me was getting the porch lighting to my liking. Once again a BIG thank you to Steve Rich for posting this tutorial on his blog. The tutorial is ‘Day to Night’ by Bill Fritz over at HDR One. Thank you to Bill as well.







Follow the tutorial by Bill Fritz from HDR One.

Don’t forget to:

1. Duplicate image and do your normal edits.

2. Create a composite layer several times while working ~  CMD + option + shift + E on a Mac or CTL + ALT + shift + E on a PC.

3. Save your several times while you are working just in case!!

Please let me know if you have any questions.


As always please remember if you choose to use any of the links or tutorials on this blog that you give credit to the author.
