Check out this video tutorial from Phlearn, which shows you a couple quick methods you can use to color your landscape photos in Photoshop. You’ll learn how to isolate specific parts of the photo so your saturation adjustments don’t affect the entire image. You can select color ranges to alter or use selection tools to create masks on your adjustment layers. Some pretty cool, yet simple tools to really make your landscape images pop.
In this video from Karl Taylor, he walks us through one of his tips using the mulitiply blend mode and masking around some details in Photoshop to add more drama to the sky in landscape images.
In this video, photographer Thomas Heaton travels around Iceland looking for just the right shot at a variety of locations. One of the unique aspects of Heaton’s video is that you feel like you are walking through the process with him as he tries to find just the right shot in just the right location.
You hear him say throughout the video that it’s worth the time to walk around and see what is there rather than just arrive and start shooting. Of course, the slow fading light in Iceland helps with that process too. As he points out, you might have 10 minutes to set up and get a sunset show in England (or the US) but Iceland gives you three hours of similar sunset light so you can wait for just the right moment.
Clocking in at over 16 minutes, it is longer than most YouTube tutorial videos; however, it is well shot and edited for those interested in the photographic process.
