Enchanted Valley

'Enchanted Valley'

On this tutorial divided in 9 lessons we will begin covering some important aspects about location, concept, composition and color. Then we will see how to emphasise the mood, how to create depth and some relevant techniques like: manual blending, adding fog, warping, cleaning distractions, controlled contrast, creating source of light, light glow, diffused light, web sharpening and more.



For me, the mood doesn't only mean dark images without too much colors, but also colorful pictures with a dark look. On this tutorial divided in 10 lessons we will cover how to manage light and how to add the correct colors in landscape photography, maintaining the mood. It starts with some tips on composition and color theory to understand why I chose that composition and why I want to process it with those colors. After the adjustments in Lightroom, the course continues with more powerful techniques like focus stacking, warping, controlled contrast, color management, colorful light painting, adding atmosphere, Orton effect, dodge & burn and more.

Introduction to Chaos

This tutorial starts covering the location, concept, composition and color theory. After some RAW preparation in Lightroom, it continues into Photoshop, showing how to add natural clouds, advanced warping to improve the composition, vignetting, improving the colors, how to create light and lifelike sunbeams from nothing, improving the atmosphere, light glow effect, effective dodge & burn and more.

Is this course refundable?

Yes, the course has a 15 days money-back guarantee in case you're not completely satisfied.

Can I buy just one of the tutorials separately?

Sorry but for the moment it's just on sale the full pack. The three tutorials complement very well each other to learn the whole process of editing moody landscapes.

Do I need to buy Lightroom and Photoshop to benefitting from this course?

Yes, those softwares are not included. You will have to subscribe for yourself. I recommend you the 'Photography Plan' for 12€/month.

Do I need the last version of Lightroom and Photoshop?

No, you don't really need the last version. All the techniques used in this course can also be made with older versions of this softwares.

Besides the Adobe softwares, do I need any other plugin for the course?

An action panel to quickly create luminosity masks is highly recommended. I use the Tony Kuyper 7 Panel but you can download a free basic version of the TK6 which will practically do the same job.

The Nik Collection (Color Efex Pro 4) plugin is used just one time in one of the videos. I recommend you but it's not an essential tool for my workflow.

Does it matter if I work on a Mac or PC?

No, I use Mac and every time I use my keyboard I explain what are the keys I'm clicking on Windows as well. So you won't have any issue about that.

What level of experience is required for joining this course?

A very basic knowledge on Lightroom and Photoshop is needed. Despite I explain the tools I use step by step, it is recommended to know the basics of these softwares as this course is not about them, but about my pictures.

I'm David Aguilar and I will be your teacher during the course. I have a deep passion for Landscape Photography, which has been my main dedication for the past 3 years, searching the best landscapes at the best moments.

As photographers, we can express our feelings of a moment to others, we can convey a message to tell a story and to show what your eyes saw and what your heart felt. In my case, I take photographs to show people how our beautiful natural world is through my eyes and to express my feelings on those gorgeous places.

Despite being at the right place at the right moment is key in photography, the post-processing skills are also very important to correct things that our camera sees differently than our eyes and to emphasise certain elements of the photo so that we can convey the feelings and evoke emotion.  On this course I show you all my techniques which will help to express your feelings with your photos.
