Here’s a before and after picture of my latest work using Photoshop for post-production. I painted in some color dodge, then added exposure and brightness adjustment layers.
The painted effect was done by adding a dry brush filter with the brush size all the way down, the brush detail all the way up and the texture in the middle range.
I also rendered out just the environment on a transparent background so I had more control to affect the just the sky with different effects…although I really didn’t end up using it.
Hope it helped, please consider following me on Instagram. Thanks.
