Today I was reading a blog post by Matt Kloskowski on luminosity colouring in Photoshop. Anyway here is the video from Matt explaining how it is done.
So for my example I used the image below.
By using the Colour Range tool I selected certain elements of the image and followed the instructions by Matt in the video. I did this by using various layers and I even added a gradient to part of the sky.
The active photo shows the areas I targeted using the luminosity colouring. I only made subtle changes but this is one technique that I will be exploring further.
I highly recommend visiting Matt on his website where he has many free tips and tutorials, as well as courses you can purchase for a reasonable price. You can also subscribe to his YouTube Channel. I do find Matt’s tips and tutorials, easy to understand and a great benefit to learning both Photoshop and Lightroom. I have learnt a lot from Matt and it was Matt who actually reduced my fear of Photoshop.
