How to Enhance the Sky in Your Photographs
In this tutorial I talk about the post-processing methods of enhancing the sky after you’ve already taken your picture. The first method is a simple blue gradient in Adobe Camera RAW, but you can also create gradients in Lightroom and I know in Photoshop you can decide on multiple colors to use in your gradient to give your sky more variety. Then I talk about capturing the sky by exposing for the sky rather than your subject, and you can easily brighten up your subject in post processing. The last thing I show you is how to use two different exposures of your picture by creating two jpg images and overlapping them in Photoshop. I feele like I kind of rushed over the layers and masks explanation, but you can get an in depth tutorial on layers and masks in the Portrait Photography Tutorials program and in the Complete Photographer Overnight Program.
So here’s tutorial three for getting better skies in your photography. If you missed the first two, you can find them here:

As I make time for these tutorials in the mornings while my kids are still asleep, sometimes I don’t get quite finished before one of them wakes up, and that’s why this one is a little rushed at the end and I didn’t quite finish! But I’ll be posting more soon! Let me know if you have any questions about what I’ve covered
