Mastering Photoshop Layers
I'm just back from an incredible Phase One PODAS workshop in Kununurra where, at this time of the year, it is usual to have cloudless blue skies. And while cloudless blue is great for travel brochures, it isn't what I had in mind. In fact, I was getting ready to strip in some clouds if necessary. But how do you do it?
First, it's not easy to drop a new sky into every landscape. In the example above of Ani in Eastern Turkey, I have specially selected it as a training example simply because it has an easy sky! However, if you have a complicated horizon line with lots of irregularly shaped trees, it can be a nightmare to drop in a sky properly.
