Step 25

We finished with the ambient effects and now in the finishing touches. First you need create a merged copy of entire image (Cmd/Ctrl + Opt/Alt + Shift + E) and convert it to Smart Object (Layer > Smart Objects > Convert to Smart Object). Go to Filter > Sharpen > Smart Sharpen... Set the values as shown in the image below. This sharpness up the entire image including you can manually adjust the sharpness of shadows and light.


The second stage of sharpening will work with the details. Go to Filter > Sharpen > Unsharp Mask... Set Amount: 111%, Radius: 0.8px, Threshold: 1 levels.


Step 26

Now add the main spot of color. It is necessary to focus the viewer on the main character. Add adjustment layer "Gradient Fill" with following gradient #030303 > #0d2f4b > #144a68 > #4b90a5 > #92cfd2 > #d8eee3 > #ffffff, Mode: Radial, Scale: 150%, Reverse. Set Blending Mode to "Soft Light", Opacity around 70%, Fill around 60%.


Step 27

And in the final add some contrast. I used an adjustment layer "Curves". I edited the curve for each channel to show contrast in certain areas of the image. Use image below to set up curves. Set Blending Mode to "Luminosity" and you're done!

  1. Anton, you should download some of her PSD files so you can see what's she's doing. It'll help you learn PS faster.

  2. Great Tutorial. Ive been working on my weaknesses, and photo manipulation is one of them. I never even used some of the adjustment techniques in this, so that was a real eye opener. Camera Raw was really cool. Very powerful.

  3. WOW. These comments are amazing. Did anyone even do the tutorial? How about the part with the first step where you have to download the skyscraper image, and how it's not actually available in the link provided.... ? Do we just try with another image that looks kinda similar? Is this tutorial meant to be a "rough guide" ?

  4. This kind of work is common, there are several works in this style.

    It would be very interesting if the owner of the website to publish creative tutorials.

  5. For goodness sake why a gun? Such barbarity and not anything to celebrate or glorify. Go take a picture of something less banal and more inspirational.

  6. This is simply wonderful composite work...just one correction she's not a Sniper as she's carrying a customized M4 Assault Rifle with Reflex sight & Sound Suppressor attachment..

    1. Maybe because they used the same stock which is a model on deviantArt :) .
      and she allows others to use her photos.

    2. No, you are showing 2 things by that attitude.
      - you Need to grow up
      - you have no self confidence :)

      There is nothing in the world says to attack others work in order to maintain yours. :)

      Although if you just focused alittle. if i say that i did something similar , it would mean that i like yours.

      but as i said. you just need to mentally grow up (Y)
