    Thanks so much for the in-depth look at your process. My main suggestion for improving the class would be to minimize portions of Lightroom / PS that you are not using while you are talking. That would allow the image to take center stage and make it easier to see the changes you are making.

    Thanks again for your time and instruction. I look forward to working through some of your suggestions on my coming trips.

      Thanks for the input, Matt! Yeah, sometimes the complicated stuff needs to be paused/replayed a bunch, and I’m always looking for ways to make it smoother!

      Either way, especially when it comes to this stacking trick, I’m so glad that I started doing this extra work in the field years before I even got into the post-production side of stacking/blending. Even if you don’t currently have an app like Starry Landscape Stacker (Mac) or Sequator, (PC) as long as you have an external trigger, or a camera that allows the automation of capturing 4-9 frames in sequence, do it for all your landscape frames, because someday you’ll be able to get these incredible clean results. Every time I go through my archives from 5+ years ago, I find another timelapse or stack sequence that can be given a whole new life through this technique…

    Thanks so much, I learnt a lot, very thorough course.  Plus I  never knew about these more involved noise reduction techniques – fantastic!
