Hi again, @dangreenwoodphotography
here! Thanks for following along, and I hope you enjoyed my takeover. This particular image took me several days of planning and pre-visualizing to put the final image together. I set out on a five-hour drive and quick hike to photograph this location which was riddled with mosquitos. After I had captured the images I wished to use in the production of this piece, I began my typical @Photoshop
workflow. Sometimes, I just let the idea flow directly from my mind onto my digital canvas. This was the final product of that process. Check out today’s Instagram Stories to edit this image with me.
Now it’s your turn to explore the night sky! Share your photos with #Ps_Starry
for a chance to be featured on the Photoshop Instagram page.
Hello all, @dangreenwoodphotography
here! This image was created in my mind before I even set out to photograph it. I had hiked to a local waterfall to shoot some epic compositions before blending several layers in @Photoshop
for the final image you see here. Being one of my favorite creations, I often find myself coming back to it to remember just how much work went into this piece.
here again. The desert has always been a place I enjoy exploring with my good friend @blazing_heavens.
The darkest starry skies, silence and solitude is my favorite time to get creative. When I’m not at home painting my work via @Photoshop
on a digital canvas, I am usually found somewhere under a starry, lit sky.
Hi it’s @dangreenwoodphotography
again! Bandon Beach in Oregon is by far one of my favorite places to open my mind to become I get to be creative with my camera and use different @Photoshop
tools. This place is full of breathtaking, endless seascapes and starry night skies. I find the sound of the ocean in the middle of the night to be so calming and relaxing.
Hey everyone, @dangreenwoodphotography
here. Let me welcome everyone to my mind’s eye. A place where creativity is limitless, a place where inspiration is forged through the vastness of space and the universe. The stars and endless universe are my source of inspiration.
Let me take you all on a journey through my artistic process on today’s Instagram Stories. Enjoy the show!
Hi everyone! @jaxsonpohlmanphotography
here. I’m hyped to be sharing my work with you! I’ll be showing you how to create an Astrophotography Dreamscape using @photoshop
’s A.I. Selective Tools, featuring the new Select Subject Tool! Swipe through to see my #Ps_Swipe
I’ll walk you through my technical process in #Photoshop
. For best results, open a photo without harsh light/shadows. Let’s begin by clicking the Quick Selection Tool (W) and adjust your Selective Tool Brush to match my settings. Now, click and drag across the foreground. Click the “Add Layer Mask” icon at the bottom right of the screen.
Expand your workspace to a 4:5 crop ratio using the Crop Tool (C). Extend your crop vertically until it reaches the border of your Selected Foreground Layer. Use the keyboard shortcut (Command + T) to Transform the Scale of the layer.
It’s time to show you what the Select Object Tool is all about! Open a photo that easily distinguishes the silhouette of the person. Use the Crop Tool to work solely on the silhouette of the person. Check out how simple this is…Just click “Select -> Subject”, wait a few seconds, and you’re good to go!
Add the silhouette to the Foreground Layer. Open your sky photo and move it over to your original workspace (under the Foreground and Silhouette Layers).
Now, we're going to add a shooting star and a few bright stars. Use the Crop Tool to frame the subject. Click Select -> Color Range and then select the brightest portion of the shooting star and match my settings. Move the shooting star over to your workspace. Press (Command + T) to manipulate the orientation of the shooting star.
Let’s use the Brush Tool (B) to add a few bright stars. Adjust the size of your brush to match my settings. Select a Foreground Color that is a bit brighter than the color of the sky and apply the brush with a single click on your Sky Layer. Increase your brush size and add another star. Change your Brush Color to white and apply it to the center of your previous brush stroke. Continue to apply stars to your liking using the same process.
I hope this taught you how to better use the Selective Tools in #Photoshop
