Lighting manipulation using photoshop

So, in this video i will show you how you can transform any regular day photo into a night photograph using some adjustment layers and masking in photoshop.

The tutorial was made for beginners and pro both so it can get a little boring for some people who already know basic so feel free to skip in some parts.

The biggest relief is that you don’t need to cut any background in this manipulation, we will apply everything on top of it.And also get ready for some really heavy use of adjustment layers in this video because that’s only things we will use to finish this video.

First of all we need to make the basic image dark, so that it starts giving feeling that its night time and for that i used curves and some direct painting with black brush on lower opacity.

Once image looks like night time, we will apply some lens flare to turn on the lighting in the lamp and then will use the brush tool to enhance the light.And then we will apply some dodge and burn tool so that we can shape some of the lights and make image look even sharper.i will also show you some tricks so that final lamp looks realistic instead of just some yellow dot.

Then i will show you how to apply texture on the over all image and use filters and blending modes to make it look even cooler.(i meant warmer ;). And yes all of the stock download link is under this description. then some color correction and some changes here and there.

So, I hope you learned something from this photoshop tutorial and as always if you have any questions feel free to ask me in the comments, and have some fun with photoshop 🙂
