Project Name: Tone Mapping
Project Goal: To learn how to use tone mapping when editing photos in PhotoShop.
Project Narrative: These are some pictures I took inside and outside my house. I used tone mapping to intensify certain colors and details.
Here are some examples of tone mapping on photos I have taken.
Here’s the photo with the auto curve adjuster.
Here is the final with the gradient mapping overlay with the blending mode set to “Multiply”.
Here’s the first step using the auto curve adjuster.
Then here is is with the gradient mapping overlay with the same settings used on the purple flower photo.
It was a little dark with just the gradient mapping, so I adjusted the midtone levels.
Here is the photo with the auto curve adjustments.
Here it is with the same gradient mapping settings as the other two photos.
Auto curve adjustment again.
Same gradient mapping settings as the first three, only it was a little too dark, so I adjusted the opacity.
