In this video we go over how I edited this image from Busan South Korea and how I use the Color Range tool in Photoshop to select parts of the image very quick and easily. Its a perfect way to select parts of images like the blue sky or a night sky. I must share a little back story on this image and how I got to Busan in the first place.
Every year I treat my self to a 30 day vacation away from the distraction of work and day to day life here in Tokyo. This year My wife and I planned a trip around Asia that started in Singapore then off to Thailand and ending in South Korea before we headed back to Japan. While in Korea, I wanted to meet up with a long time friend Jason Teale and finally meet him in person and go out shooting one night. I also had the pleasure to meet Pete Demarco that day as we loaded up in a super small car to wonder the streets of Busan that night. The first place they took me was down town to the water front to shoot the skyline. They told me that they normally find a puddle and then shoot the reflection of the buildings. It’s the iconic image that everyone has seen all over the Internet. They also told me that if they don’t have a puddle, they simple grab a bucket and splash some water on the concrete to make a puddle…… I would have never thought of that…LOL. So with out going into a full blown blog post. Here in the Video with before and after images.
