In case you missed it, Macphun recently made the full transition to their new name, Skylum. This branding change is in large part due to the company switching from only making software for Mac to releasing their software on Windows as well. You can learn more about the name change here.

As part of their new brand, Skylum Software has released a new video with travel photographer Jim Nix. In the video below, Nix focuses on how to edit sunlit landscapes using Skylum's Luminar software. When working at sunrise or sunset, it can be challenging to create a photo which matches what you see with the naked eye. There is a lot of dynamic range in the scene, which means you typically need to work with exposure, shadows and highlights in particular when processing sunlit landscape images.

In the video below, we see Nix's general workflow within Luminar, learn more about the Raw Develop filter, see gradient filters in action, balance exposure throughout the scene, add warmth, use the new sunrays filter and make color corrections and enhancements.
