The Art of Sky Replacement
Replacing a sky in a photograph has never been easier. Whether you're looking to replace a boring sky in a landscape image, or adding a more dramatic sky to a portrait, programs like Photoshop and Luminar AI have introduced the tools to make it simple to do a very high quality, professional level, sky replacement. Just because a sky can be replaced using AI simply by selecting a different sky doesn’t mean your work is done. When done correctly an image with a sky replacement should leave the viewer believing that the scene is real. If your compositing efforts aren’t convincing the viewer will sense that something isn’t quite right. Even if they cant quite put their finger on it.
This 90-minute photography clinic is not only about learning the technical steps of replacing a sky using Photoshop and Luminar AI, but also the art of sky replacement, ensuring that sky fits the tones, lighting and shadows of the scene. Our goal is to lead the viewer to believe the scene is real!
