In this short video tutorial, I share a quick and easy Photoshop tip for sculpting contour and depth into clouds using luminosity selections and dodging and burning layers generated with the TKActions V6 panel. It’s a simple but powerful way to give cloudy skies interest and dimension and provides more control and smoother tonal transitions than other approaches. Give it a try and let me know how it works for you.
