Color Correction of the Sheep
Now have a look at the Final Project without Color Correction.
We need to make changes in order to make it perfect and awesome. To do that first we will add shadow to the picture by creating a new layer above the background. After creating a layer, fill it with black color and change the blending mode to soft light.
I don’t want all the shadow around, especially under the iPhone. So, create a mask or remove it using the eraser.
The next step is creating a sun. To do that, create a new above all the layers and fill it with black color. Then navigate to Filter, render and select lens flare. They apply settings in the screenshot.
After that right click on the layer and convert it to the smart object.
Then visit the Filter menu, Blur, Gaussian Blur. Put the amount of Blur 46 and place that above the sheep to look like a sun.
Now, we need to bring changes to the light. Press Ctrl+ U to open Hue/saturation and apply the settings as the screenshot.
This time we are going to create a shadow just on the sheep. So, hold the Ctrl key and click on the mask of the sheep to enable the selection. Then create a new layer, after that with black and white Gradient draw just like the screenshot.
After applying Gradient to the sheep, change the blending mode to Multiply. Also, decrease the opacity to 54%.
Once again hold the Ctrl button and click on the sheep layer to enable the selection. Again paint it with black color but transform it to vertical under to the sheep to look like the shadow from the sun.
Go ahead decrease the opacity to 23%, and also remove some parts of shadow under the iPhone. Then visit the filter menu, blur, Gaussian Blur and change put the amount 6.
Overall Color Correction
In this section, first, we have to make it dark using the curves on using form layer panel. (Make it slightly dark not too much).
This Time we need to apply color balance to the Picture. Apply the settings below as in the picture.
And the final adjustments are selective colors. Again Apply the settings below as in the picture.
