Edit the Milky Way Tutorial

In part one of my three-part tutorial series, I describe how I photograph the galactic core of the Milky Way and blend two separate exposures together. Follow along as I give you an in-depth look into my non-destructive editing workflow using Adobe Photoshop to apply layer adjustments, create & edit layer masks, incorporate dodge & burn layers, and apply noise reduction to hone your fundamental skills. If you are new to Adobe Photoshop and/or Bridge, I HIGHLY recommend watching this tutorial first.
