In this Photo manipulation episode, I will create a vibrant fantasy scene using bright colors, tilt shift blur and adjustment layers. We’ll start off by extracting the model from the background, adding a tilt shift blur to the background, using a curves adjustment layer to make the colors pop, do a few touch-ups where it’s needed. We’ll then add dust particles and a gradient map.

There’s many variations when creating similar effects such as this. Experiment with different settings such as the curves adjustment layer to get the desired effect you’re looking for. I personally liked the vibrant colors and the reds mainly in the model’s hair. You can download our free gradient pack with over 100 free gradients. You may find one you like.
