How to Replace a Sky and Reflection Using Photoshop

Programs like Photoshop have gained some pretty impressive automated sky replacement functions in the last few years, making a task that used to be rather tedious and involved far more efficient and easy. Nonetheless, one place where things can get tricky is when there is a body of water reflecting the sky in the frame. This awesome video tutorial will show you how to tackle that situation so you can create a convincing and complete sky replacement in Photoshop. 

Coming to you from Anthony Morganti, this great video tutorial will show you how to replace both a sky and its reflection using Photoshop. Sky replacement used to be a really tedious task that you had to do mostly manually, meaning it was to be left for only the most important photographs, but thankfully, automated methods can now convincingly tackle a lot of situations, making it viable for far more images. Still, reflections are trickier to handle, but as you will see, with a little bit of ingenuity, you can make them pretty convincing, particularly on still bodies of water. It's a good skill to add to your bag of tricks. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Morganti.

How to replace sky, reflections and the entire subject in Photoshop...
I was looking at that bee on a curled tiny string that popped in photo of the day and then though, why even bother. Went back to watch Tour de France where real is much more enjoyable.

As someone who knows very little about all this PP stuff, it's very helpful to get this information. I mostly get all ny shots in camera. Thank you.
