Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Working on shadows and color, part of Photoshop for Photographers: Compositing.
Here we're going to take a look at how we can finish this project off by…modifying the color and tone, and also by adding just a small slight shadow.…All right, well let's go ahead and modify the color in the subject. To do that…we're going to start off with the Curves adjustment, so let's click on the…Curves adjustment layer icon.…Next, we'll select the midtone eyedropper, because what we can do with this is…we can click on the subject, because here we're assuming that he's wearing…black, even though it looks a little bit blue, by clicking on it, it'll then…make that color neutral.…
Now the problem is, is that it made the color neutral for the subject, but it…also changed the overall color of the image, so we need this Curves adjustment…just to affect the subject.…To do that, you can click on this icon here, which allows you create…what's called a Layer Clipping Mask, so this adjustment now is just…modifying the subject.…Next, now that he's a little bit more neutral, what I want to do is remove a lot…
