    Sean Bagshaw on Luminosity Masks, One-Click Post Processing Apps

    Chris is joined by Sean Bagshaw, who was at Out of Oregon and will join us again for Out of Acadia (https://www.outofchicago.com/acadia/) in 2020. They discuss everything there is to know about Luminosity Masks, including why someone may want to use them and how to avoid going too far in post-processing.
    Speaking of post-processing, the two chat about replacing skies, one-click photo post processing apps, and why they both prefer to get granular in their editing.
