Photoshop Foundations: Sky Replacements

How many times have you spent good time and money to go to the location of your dreams praying for gorgeous skies?  How many times did that location look impressive, but the clouds decided to take the day off?   Better yet, the whole week off?

That happened to me on a trip to Yosemite during a huge 5-day workshop.  We have fantastic weather, but our sunrises, sunsets and even midday shooting times had no cloud movement.  Did I scrap all my shots?  Heck no!  I brought them home and replaced those horribly drab skies with beautiful cloud images that I had in my repository of clouds.

In this course, I am going to teach you all my tricks for replacing skies.   We are going to turn those boring photos into gorgeous landscapes with these efficient and believable techniques.
