Bland Sky? Not A Problem With This Advanced Photoshop Technique

Synopsis

Sometimes you have a plan to capture beautiful images outside, but the sky just doesn't want to cooperate. While you don't have control over how the sky will look when you're out shooting, it's something that can be switched out in post-processing. In this tutorial, Sony Artisan Chris Orwig walks through the steps of changing out the sky in a photograph. With one of Photoshop's "magic" tools, a bland sky can be replaced with a sunny, blue one. Replacing the sky isn't new, but Orwig's technique gets it done with precision and makes for a natural-looking final image.
