Let’s break down this Image and see how calop created this image in this photoshop editing tutorial.
First take a look on how calop shot this photo by seeing some behind the scenes-
This is BTS of the amazing manipulation that we saw, now take a look on the Image that I created without any external light souce.
Don’t judge me because I am not a model just see the editing-
I said my friend to take a pic of mine and at that time we didn’t had any external light source.
The pic was shot in a room with normal lighting conditions and then I edited this pic in photoshop and tried to make lights one me.
You can see the layer Breakdown by calop below-
Now I will tell you how I added those lights, I will show you all the layers.
Photoshop Editing tutorial-
As you can see in the above layer breakdown-
First I extracted myself from the background using Pen tool
Then I added a new background and merged both the layers
After that I match the Exposure and Colors of the foreground(me) with background with the help of exposure and color balance adjustment layer.
Now created a new empty layer to make the orange highlights-
As you can see in the empty layer I used brush to create lights.
Set the blending mode to Soft Light or Color
Start drawing the lights on you on the side of light source.
Tip- Clip the layer to yourself and draw the lights
After drawing the light on myself,
I again took the brush and on a new empty layer above all the layers I painted the orange color with soft light blending.
At last I merged all the layer and did color grading in camera raw and that’s it.
