Golden backlight, that has to be Emily’s signature Inspawration style. This editing tutorial takes you through how to edit an underexposed backlit photo of Journey. 

You’ll experience Emily’s complete workflow, from starting on a RAW photo in Lightroom, to putting together a panorama image in either Lightroom or Photoshop, shaping the light, manipulating colours to achieve these rich warm oranges and browns, and so much more.

This course includes over an hour of video instruction, a bonus downloadable .pdf accompanying workbook, a BONUS tutorial (see below!) and of course the RAW files to download.

You'll learn...


Created to complement Emily’s editing tutorials, this warm, backlit edit goes through the Inspawration Process in detail – with the aim to give you a process you can follow for any of your own photos.

Explaining the rationale behind the order of the workflow, and the reasoning behind why she does what she does, Emily takes you through another full start to finish tutorial on one of her favourite photos of Journey.

Some important info

This tutorial uses Lightroom Classic, and Photoshop 2022. Using other versions of these programs may result in the tools, techniques, keyboard shortcuts and so on being slightly different. It should still be possible to follow the tutorials, even on completely different programs, but then of course no results are guaranteed. You must already own or be subscribed to Lightroom and Photoshop, as these programs are not included in the purchase. You should have some basic knowledge of Photoshop, mostly: how to mask layers together, and how to mask adjustment layers. This is not a tutorial for absolute beginners.

Due to the nature of this as a digital product, you waive your right to a refund upon purchase. All lessons are in English, and are available on desktop, or mobile device, as videos, text, and images through this website, which you will be given access to upon signing up. Please check your email upon signing up for instructions, and your spam if you do not see any emails from us. All content, videos, lessons, and information is not to be shared.
