Replace a gray sky with a blue sky

This is a short tutorial on my favorite technique for swapping out a gray or white sky for a blue sky in Adobe Photoshop. I use the Select Color Range function as well as the Pen Tool to select, delete, and replace overexposed sky portions of my image.

In my experience vivid yet realistic images help a Real Estate listing stand out more which can ultimately get more buyers interested in the home. Let me know if you have any questions or comments on the techniques show in this tutorial.

Screened Deck in Denville

Screened Deck Photograph
Screened Deck in Denville

Location:
Denville
Morris County
New Jersey

Description:
This photo is part of a set of 25 real estate photographs taken on a recent listing shoot in Denville NJ, in the Indian Lake subdivision to be precise.  Shooting any angle where bright sunlight and shadow meet can be very challenging for a real estate photographer whose goal is to show detail throughout the entire home.

For this capture, I set the exposure bracketing on my Canon SL1 to +/- 2 full stops of exposure compensation and set the camera timer while my DSLR sat atop my tripod.  This triggered 3 consecutive shots which were merged into my HDR (High Dynamic Range) final picture to tone the challenging contrast levels of the scene.

What I like most about this space:
What’s better than a large deck for entertaining friends and family?  A large screened deck for entertaining friends and family!  This backyard setup looks especially great for barbecues as it allows space for outdoor grilling while shielding people and food from the threat of mosquitoes.

Camera equipment utilized:
Canon SL1 DSLR
Canon 10-18mm IS lens
Canon Speedlite 580EX II
Manfrotto 055xDB tripod
MHXPRO-BHQ2 XPRO

Software processing:
Adobe Lightroom CC
Adobe Photoshop CC

Open layout in Chester NJ

Chester New Jersey Real Estate Photography
Open layout in Chester NJ

Location:
Chester
Morris County
New Jersey

Description:
A great modern kitchen for a friend’s real estate listing.  This photograph is a two image composite consisting of one flash frame as well as one ambient frame.  The longer-exposure ambient shot allowed me achieve brightness in the house’s entryway while the flash provided the main illumination for the foreground.

What I like most about this room:
White walls are a joy for a real estate photographer to shoot as the flash reflects most easily off of all walls.  One of my favorite techniques is to angle the camera directly over the kitchen countertop.  This will lead the viewer (potential home buyer) directly through the kitchen as he or she browses the real estate listing online.

Camera equipment utilized:
Canon 6D DSLR
Tamron SP 15-30mm lens
Canon Speedlite 580EX II
Manfrotto 055xDB tripod
MHXPRO-BHQ2 XPRO

Software processing:
Adobe Lightroom CC
Adobe Photoshop CC
