Famed photographer Trey Ratcliff over at Stuck in Customs shows how to jazz up your sun in one of his latest video’s using Skylum Software’s Luminar 2018. Skylum Software has gained quite a following as it works to dethrone Adobe as the go-to raw photo editor.
As Ratcliff states in various videos, he “unapologetically edits his photos” to his taste, so for the die-hard photographers who are not fans of heavy editing and lots of filters, turn back now. Ratcliff has received international fame as being an HDR (high dynamic range) photographer, but has also now worked with companies such as Peak Design and Skylum Software on various projects, such as the Everyday Messenger Bag and Aurora HDR.
Skylum’s Luminar 2018 is packed full of filters that were once reserved for only Photoshop masters, now available to the masses to twist and tease their images to their hearts desire. While this can easily be overdone, subtle edits with Luminar can really enhance the final version of your photos. Ratcliff quickly walks through one of the more popular filters in this episode, Sunrays, explaining how to craft the light to your liking using the controls provided. Luminar sells for only $69 with no subscription payments, but 14-day trial offers are available for those who are interested.
