Surreal Arctic Scene Photoshop Tutorial


Step 1

Open the image "Sunset in Finland" and resize it to: 2000 X 1333 pixels. This step is optional but for the needs of illustrating a tutorial this size will be sufficient.


Step 2

We will remove the sky by using a channel mask. Go to channels palette and make a copy of the red channel. You can do that by right clicking and selecting "Duplicate channel". With only the red channel copy selected go to Image > Apply Image. Use "vivid light" blending mode at 100% opacity.
