Photoshop Tutorial: Dramatic Sky

Hi All,
Thought I’d kick the week off with Part 2 of the Photoshop Tutorial showing how I edited the Run for Alfie Poster.

In this 2nd installment I’m working on making the sky in the picture a bit more dramatic. Ideally I like to add drama to the sky ‘in camera’ but on the day of the shoot all that resulted in was making a dull featureless sky darker…but equally as dull and featureless.

So enter Photoshop where we can actually add in a sky from another photograph (not ideal but needs must) making use of selections and blend modes…

Enjoy 🙂
