Getting the shotsAs I've mentioned before I always shoot in RAW (see an explanation of RAW) so for me it's easy. From the one RAW shot I create both exposures, one for sky and one for ground.
If you don't have RAW you can either shoot hand-held, using automatic bracketing and being very sure to not move between shots or you can use a tripod to get both exposures.
Play the video tutorial!However you get the two shots, they're your starting point for the tutorial. So without further ado, play away!
I hope you've found the techniques shown to be effective, quick and simple to follow. As I said at the end, I will do a follow-up tutorial to finish off the work in the digital darkroom on this shot, showing a really nifty technique to get perfect contrast on the way.
