In this photoshop tutorial we will create scenic surreal photo manipulation. Follow through this tutorial to learn important steps on how to apply texture, set mood to the scene and blend images.
First of all, create a new document (Ctrl+N) with size of 1326 pxl wide and 984 pxl high. Set the color of the foreground to #f0f0f3 and the background to # a6abfb, now activate the gradient tool and choose radial gradient. Fill the document with gradient color by clicking the tool on the center of the document, holding and dragging to the direction as shown in the red arrow:
Make sure to have downloaded and installed the cloud brushes, we will add some cloud to the scene. Choose one of the brushes and create a new layer (Shift+Ctrl+N). On this new layer, paint the cloud with white color:
Then, with the other cloud brush, paint more cloud on the left side of the document:
Now we will add some objects to the scene. We will use the tennis ball images as floating objects in the scene. With elliptical marquee tool, select one of the balls. Make sure to press shift key while selecting the ball to create a perfect elliptical shape. Duplicate the selection (Ctrl+J) to make it into a new single layer.
Add the ball to the main scene. With transform tool, scale the size as needed. Set this ball layer to normal blending at 35% opacity. Place this ball layer below the cloud layers in the layer panel.
Now duplicate the ball layer and place the duplicate where desired. Make sure to arrange its position in such way that the brighter part of the ball is facing the source light which is indicated by the red arrows:
Next, duplicate the ball as many as needed and scale the sizes of the duplicates. Set the duplicates to normal blending with opacities varied to 30-60 %.
Now create another new layer above the ball layers and activate the brush tool. Choose a very soft round brush set to 10% opacity. On the new layer, paint some black gradation color on the edges of the canvas:
Next, we will add some texture to the scene. Open the texture on the document and place it below the cloud layers. Set it to hard light at 32% opacity.
With the texture layer still selected, go to layer panel and click the layer mask icon on the bottom of the panel to give a layer mask. Mask some areas on the texture marked in red.
