Very new to proper processing and not up on the jargon, so please be gentle.
The problem is this:
Grey horse, dark background, horse highlights get blown out if I crudely hike exposure. Object is to set up a mask to isolate the horse so I can adjust EV. Complexity, especially when you take mane which is normally more “wind-blown” than in this example into account, makes drawing a mask very very hard.
I’ve seen examples of how to make the technique work but it’s foxing me.
Could someone be a star and try and assume I have the Exposure mode open and am trying to work out which mask settings to start with…channel, opacity…you tell me, because I don’t have a clue
Or is there an altogether easier way?
