Stunning shot, how did you get it?
Well, its a composite. I know im being frowned upon by photographers as we speak for doing this, but above all I am an artist. To me, art is mixing the ideal and the real, and that is what I put forward when I edit my images.
Do you have shame?
As a photographer, yes i do. It sucks knowing this could’ve been an actual moment I captured. Instead, I captured 90% of this moment and it left me with a blank blue sky behind the rock climber. Not entirely ideal for the energy of the rock climber had, so I simply changed the sky.
How did you change the sky?
This one was easy I just used the photo shop select subject tool. Next, I inverted the selection, then deleted and replaced the sky.
Last, I cleaned up the sky selection crop and added some gradients to enhance the energy of the image.
