How to Adjust Lighting in Post Production using Photoshop

On this video tutorial, Photoshop product manager Bryan O’Neil Hughes takes a look at introducing a new light into an image in Photoshop.

This interesting video takes a look at a technique for changing the lighting in an image using  a curve adjustment layer. The next step will be to add a lens flare to create artificial lights in a parked car. The entire process including adding pretty realistic lighting coming out of the car’s lights takes only a few minutes – a great demonstration of what you can achieve with Photoshop in a short amount of time with the right tools.

This isn’t the first time we are looking at a tutorial for changing day into night using Photoshop – if you are interested in doing this – make sure you watch this  Howard Pinsky video as well.

B.T.W. is it just us or can Hughes switch places with Canadian actor Kris Holden and nobody will notice?

You can find many more Photoshop video tutorials on LensVid’s Photoshop section. You can also check out all of Hughes previous videos on this dedicated page.
