Add COLORS to Boring Skies with “Zones” in Photoshop!



Learn how to add vibrant colors to plain and boring skies using the “Zoning” technique in Photoshop! In this landscape editing tutorial, we will use brightness levels or luminosity to create zones and apply different colors to each zone, thus giving the image a dramatic look. We will use the power of Blend-If and Blending Modes to create a non-destructive color palette for the sky without having to stick to fixed Luminosity Masks.

We will also learn to use Camera Raw and Curves to create dimension and add lighting effects. I hope this video helps. Thank you so much for watching 🙂
