going to do Blur later on..

going to do Blur later on…but dont worry, everyone uses Gaussian Blur.So do I.You might just blur it up a bit more.So one of the other big obvious things I can see…is that its just got a blue cast to it.This backgrounds got quite a warm yellow feel to it…whereas this has got quite a blue cast.Its making this stand out too much.So with this layer selected lets even name it, lets go crazy.Smoothie.And with it selected lets go to Adjustments…and Im going to use Color Balance; which one is you?There he is there.Second, line sticking in, and Im just going to shift the blue to yellow.Now at the moment its doing it to the whole thing, so if you click on this…remember, it says, Im only going to affect the layer just underneath me…which is Smoothie.Now Im just going to kind of warm it up, turn it on and off.On and off, yes, getting there, so maybe a bit more red than cyan.A little bit of green for that green Smoothie.Do you like it? I feel like it sits in there a bit nicer.Next thing Im going to do is fix up this glass.Its like really bright compared to the background.Its not showing through any texture…and youll run into this problem with glass, glass is tough.Im going to do kind of a caveman fix, I want to show you what I would do now.So Im going to zoom in.What I want to do is work on the mask.Im going to use my paintbrush.Im going to make a nice small brush.Im going to have the opacity at maybe 20%.How hard is it going to be? Hardness at 0, I want it nice and fluffy.So what I want to do is–Im going to leave a lot of the whites, its this gray stuff.The blacks are good, the whites are good.Often when youre working with glass…its the Mid Tones that are the background.So Im just going to caveman it and do this.Im just painting it out.So Im just kind of painting it out in little parts.Why? Because its showing through the background a little bit…bringing through that kind of ready Okla thats in there.Im just making the glass a bit more translucent.Total cheap trick rather than getting too complicated about it.Changing the colors and stuff would work…but if we put it on a different background…at least this technique is going to show through the background a bit more.I might remove a little bit of the glass as well.I mean the highlights, just to kind of lighten it up a little bit.To show you what I mean, remember, we can hold down…Option on a Mac, Alt on a PC and just click on the mask…and just see what Im doing here.Its pretty primitive, but…you can see, its just that, now kind of blend in a bit more.If I move the background, give it a name…you can see, it just kind of moves there and kind of…takes on a bit of that background through it, and that should be it…but this bottom down here is annoying me as well.Theres like a weird reflection that just wouldnt happen on this desktop, I feel.So you could work on the actual image and maybe darken it.Im just going to work on the Layer Mask because I dont want to destroy the image.Do the same thing with my Brush Tool.Im just going to kind of lower this a little bit, just the bits I dont like.Even though, would kind of peek through.All right, how much do I like it?Im pretty happy. Im okay with finished shadow doing weird stuff.One last thing, I know theres just one last thing but I–Weird thing that happened, I created a new layer…and because it was in between my Adjustment Layer and the image…kind of did this weird thing where it became…whats called a Clipping Mask for this image, that happens all the time.Just drag underneath, make sure that is still using this option.Connected to the bottom, and my layer here is going to be Extra Shadow.I always find believability in doing just a little bit of black paint brushing.So Brush, Im going to have Opacity of maybe 50%, Im going to use black.Another shortcut for you is, see my foreground and background color?One is blue, one is white.So you can click on this to force it to go black and white…but youll see, theres my shortcut given away, D key.So if I hit D, just sets it back to the default, black and white.X key toggles between the two.See over here, X goes foreground and
