The theme for week twenty of the fifty-two week photography project is sky overlay. It is a photo editing project, and the purpose was to replace the sky in the photograph with a different sky. I decided to go for the dramatic approach in choosing the sky.
This was not an easy project for the Photoshop newbie. Fortunately, I was able to find an on line tutorial that was simple enough for me to understand. I downloaded a picture of a sky from flickr.com that was under “creative commons licensing.” Once I was able to get past the frustration of leaping far from my comfort zone, I was able to see this project as actually a fun activity.
Here is the original photograph. The sky is OK but it’s not at all dramatic:
This is the photograph with the sky replaced. It is bright and very dramatic and quite colorful. I would call it a “fun sky.”
Next week: Stay tuned for the next installment of the 52-week photography project.
