Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video Isolating lanterns and adding light, part of Creating Dreamscapes in Photoshop: 2.
So now that we have our building pretty much started, we need to add some more …lights, because people will be walking on the street, and we don't want them …falling down in the dark, so I'm going to add some lanterns. …So, where do we get lanterns? Well I have a shot here that I took in …Venice, and it wasn't that nice of a day, as you can see, it's overcast, the shot's …a little, kind of faded out and so on, but these 2 lanterns, right here and …here, those are the lanterns I want. Those are perfect. …So what I'm going to do, is I'm going to go in here and I'm just going to go to my …levels just to kind of darken those dark area's.…
I want to really darken that,those lanterns up a bit. …Let's get the mid tones up a little and we're going to really darken those …lanterns, click OK. Now we're going to look at our channels. …And see which is going to give us the best contrast. …Which, right there is going to be the blue. …So I'm going to duplicate the blue channel. …And I'm going to take that blue channel and invert it. …
