Tutorial Tuesday

This evening I had a very quick play around, after being inspired by Ashley Sisk's Tutorial Tuesday challenge. I'll hopefully give this a better go later in the week when I have a bit more time, but it was fun to experiment with something new. This tutorial focuses on changing background colours in Photoshop. 

I took this photo of my friend Litsa and changed the back/foreground colour in the field to a deep red hue. 

I wanted more of the red, however, and got a bit carried away! I copied Litsa to an additional layer and then worked with the background, using the 'clone' tool to add to the background. 

Although definitely not a polished finish, I am pleased that I now know how to alter background colours. 
Next step, cleaning up edges...


  1. It almost makes it look as if it was a fall photo. Nice job.

  2. Oh, I like it! So cool!

  3. Like the change, red is always dramatic.
