Manipulated Image - Austin Wilkins - Street Light


One night when it started snowing, I decided to go out in my neighborhood with my camera to see whether I could capture some photos.  As I looked through my photos I found one that would look better if I manipulated it. The photo I chose included a light post reflecting on the trees. When I uploaded the photos I chose this photo because the tree was in better focus. I then decided to import the Photo into Photoshop CS6. After I imported the photo, I made a layer over the photo layer so that I could adjust the color of the light.  I decided to set the opacity to 37 and I used a brush to color and turned on the subtract option and making the area around it orange. I made two brightness or contrast layers on top of the layer and background. I made one for the light and one for the tree. After that, I made a levels layer over brightness and contrast layers and set it for the whole image for a better color. To give the image a more pure red and more variance in colors in the tree, I put a vibrance layer on top of the levels layer for the whole image making it a darker red. I then used a brush to create a snow effect on top of the vibrance layer to bring out the snow. To make the image have a more red tint, I put a hue or saturation layer on top of the snow layer for the whole image.
