Changing the Background Colour with Photoshop

For this tutorial I want to share a couple of techniques with you for changing the look and colour in the background of your photographs.

These are techniques that I employed recently when I decided later in the post production stage that the original background in some portraits shots needed spicing up a bit; nothing major other than just adding a spotlight effect behind the subject and maybe changing the colour slightly.

In the video I cover a technique for use in Photoshop CS5 but for those using earlier versions I go through an alternative method that produces similar results.

Enjoy 🙂
