Using Cosmos Overlay to Create an Evening/Night Image
As I mentioned on Sunday, I took one of my new Cosmos textures and made multiple versions with Topaz ReStyle.
I used the “Muted Gray Walls” version over one of my barn shots to create the look of night.
I started with this original image:
I began with a Preset/Look in Topaz Studio 2 called “Striking Grit”, which I had used when I originally edited this photo.
I then brought in the Cosmos-1C-Muted Gray Walls texture above the other layers. I found the original sky to be “too much” when I blended the Cosmos, so I added layer masks to the original image and the Striking Grit layer to remove the sky. I then added a mask to remove most of the Cosmos texture from the barn and foreground.
Here is my final layer stack:
And the final image:
And speaking of the Cosmos textures…
I’ve added two groups of Cosmos textures to the Peacock Studio. These are large groups of 12 textures each, 15″ x 15″, 300 dpi. These were created on the iPad in Procreate!
Regular price $12 per set – on sale 50% off until Jan. 31, 2020 (midnight EDT).
REMEMBER…As I did with the texture in the barn image, you can use Topaz, Photoshop or almost any program to change the colors of the textures, desaturate to B&W, make them Impressionistic and so much more! The first texture in Set 1 (pink & blue) is what I changed to the colors for the barn image!
