How to create a dream like scene in photoshop

How to study this subject

What you値l be creating

We値l start this tutorial by creating a surreal environment with a sky and desert images. Then we値l add the model and do some retouch on him as well as blend him with the background using adjustment layers and brush. Later we値l add the rocks, particles, lightning and create some light effect. We値l finish it up with some adjustment layers. You値l need Photoshop CS3 or newer to follow the process.

Step 1

Create a new document in Photoshop with the given settings:

falling1

Step 2

Open the sky image. Drag it into our white canvas using the Move Tool (V) and use the Free Transform Tool (Cmd/Ctrl+T) to rotate it as shown below:

falling2

Step 3

I used an adjustment layer with Clipping Mask to desaturate the sky color. Go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Hue/Saturation:

Step 4

I used Curves to darken the sky sides:

On this layer mask use a basic, soft brush with black color to erase the middle as I don稚 want it to be darkened:

falling4a

Step 5

Drag the desert image into our main document and transform it, place it at the right side:

falling5

Click the second button at the bottom of the Layers Panel to add a mask to this layer. Use a soft black brush to remove the hard edges and blend the desert with the background:

falling5a

Duplicate this layer and flip it horizontally (Edit > Transform > Flip Horizontal). Position it at the left side:

Step 6

To add some depth to the scene, on each desert layer, go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur and set the radius to 3 px:

falling6

On the Filter Mask use a soft black brush to remove the blur effect at the top of the desert (background part) and make the blur effect visible only on the foreground:

falling6a

Step 7

Make a new layer and active the Clone Tool (S). Use this tool to clone on some parts of the deserts to make them less uniform:

Step 8

Select the desert layers and the clone one then press Cmd/Ctrl+G to make a group for them. Change the group mode from Pass Through to Normal 100%. Make a Curves adjustment layer within this group to brighten the background parts:

falling8

On this layer mask use a soft black brush to erase the foreground:

falling8a

Step 9

I used Curves to darken the foreground:

falling9

On this layer mask use a soft black brush to erase the background to keep their brightness:

falling9a

Step 10

I used Brightness/Contrast to increase the contrast of the scene:

falling10

On this layer mask erase the background as I don稚 want it to be affected by this adjustment layer:

falling10a

Step 11

Isolate the man from the background and place him in the space between the grounds:

falling11

To create more movement for the man, go to Edit > Puppet Warp. Make the arms and legs wider:

falling11a

Step 12

I used Hue/Saturation to desaturate the model a little:

falling12

Step 13

I used Curves to darken the model . On this layer mask use a soft black brush to erase the arms and the man contour, leave the dark only visible on his back :

falling13

Step 14

Open the lightning 1 image. Take the lightning part and place it over the middle section of the main document and change the mode to Screen 100%:

Add a mask to this layer and use a soft black brush to remove the hard edges and the parts on the grounds:
