In module 1 the fundamentals of Raw exposure development is covered, which ties into module 2 perfectly where blending of exposures and selective editing is discussed. A basic understanding of Lightroom or Adobe Camera Raw and Photoshop is an advantage when viewing these videos, but not entirely necessary. Because Lightroom's Raw convertor and Photoshop's Adobe Camera Raw convertor are identical (only layouts differ) I have chosen to demonstrate module 1 chapters 1.2 to 1.12 in Adobe Camera Raw. The theory is identical, only the layout is different.

Information is included in certain module 2 blending videos about how and why I used bracketed exposures.
