Introduction to Layers in Capture One


In this video I process an image, beginning to end and along the way, introduce layers by doing a bit of dodging and burning.

Exposure Info & Camera Settings

Camera on tripod
Aperture Priority Mode
Spot Metering on Waterfall
Single Point Focus on Waterfall
28sec, F11.0, iso: 160 (Lowest Native iso for this camera) at 16mm

*Note – Because of the longer exposure, the flow of water over the waterfall looks more full and significant than it actually was. When I metered off the waterfall, there was more gray rock showing through the water allowing a more accurate meter reading than if I metered off of white water as it appears.
