Create a dark spooky night photo manipulation in photoshop

This is one long tutorial but its worth it, i will show you how you can combined three different images and match them, so that it looks like that they belong in same environment.

First we will start by cutting the subject and then cutting the grave and if you know how to cut something in photoshop then skip masking part, it will save you some time. And then i will show how you can use grass brushes to mix subject and grave in jungle.

Then comes the shadow part, you will learn how you can crate shadows for your subject and how to manipulate them so that they blend really good in the scene and look realistic.

After that we will add some fog in the image to give it that spooky feeling and it is really really simple trick to create fog and anyone can follow it without using any custom brushes. Then we will apply some color correction in photo to make effect even better.

I have gone full blue to get that really mystery look , and i have used many many adjustment layers , i just stopped keeping count of anything. Then i will show some different tricks to create a blue light ball so we can create sort of fake moon light.

Then for the final touch i will show you how to sharpen certain parts of the image and then add fake depth of field so that it looks like it was shot on some really fancy camera and then again some final touches and you are good to go.

So, I hope you learned something from this photoshop tutorial and as always if you have any questions feel free to ask me in the comments, and have some fun with photoshop 🙂
