Sky Replacement Tutorial


The above video is full walk through of talking a landscape photo and replacing the sky with another photo. I used affinity photo as my editing software but you can use photoshop or another similar software.


In this blog post you will see the photos from the video with all the detailed info


the first photo is the detail landscape photo I was talking about. I like this photos because of the colours and the areas that have some more light because of how the sunlight is hitting the side of this rock wall. The sky was also replace in this image using the same process as seen in the video

50mm, f8, 1/100 sec exposure, ISO 100

This is the photo of Max he was being a good dog just sitting and watching me take the photos so after I finished up I took some photos of him sitting in the sun. I love the way the sun is flowing across his face. This photo was taken at f8 mostly because I forgot to change it after taking the landscape photos but I do like all the detail in the photo so I guess it worked out.

70mm, f8, 1/200 sec exposure, ISO 100

The last photos here are the main photos from the video.

Both of these photos were taken with - 35mm, f8, 1/160 sec exposure, ISO 100.


This side by side works well to see how changing the sky can make a really big difference. It makes it a much better photo without the clouds there is nothing happening in the sky. Adding the clouds makes it a more complete photos and helps being the whole photo together. If you weren't going to replace the sky in a photo like this you would want to take the photo in such a way that there is less sky in the photo, you could do this be zooming in, cropping, or change the angle of the camera so that there was more foreground in the photo.


Hope you enjoyed the video and some of the additional detail here, there will be a few more videos coming out this year so stay tuned for that.


Hope you enjoyed this blog, new blog coming out next Friday, don't forget to like and share it really makes a difference.
