How to Make Sun Rays in Landscape Photography With Luminar 3

I’m always searching for elements in my landscape photography that are going to add a dreamy aspect to a place. Sun rays are a very good way to add that feel to any photograph. But, you can’t just walk around in any forest and find sun rays. You have to have the right conditions to even see them let alone capture them in a photo.

For sun rays, you have to have moisture in the atmosphere in order to refract light and create a glowing element to the sky,

Obviously, you don’t always have moisture in the atmosphere.

In that case, how to you shoot run rays?

Well, post-processing has enabled landscape photographers to create elements and atmosphere in their landscape photography without it being there.

Luminar 3 from Skylum Software is the easiest process I’ve found to do this.

They have created a simple landscape photography post-processing workflow for making sun rays in landscape photography.
