How to Create an Orange Sky – Lightroom Video Tutorial

Time for another Photoshop Lightroom 2 video tutorial. This time, instead of showing you a specific tool in Lightroom, I’ll go through some post processing steps for an entire image.

This week we’ll look at creating the trendy orange sky image we see a lot of.

I mention in the video that I took this shot at a place called Champ Boisé. This is a lovely retreat center in the heart of nature that is well worth the experience. If you’re looking to get away from it all, Champ Bosé is for you.


OK, back to the tutorial… I’ll be showing you how to get from this:

Now, you’ll notice in the video that the sky isn’t as red as this image. A few days after doing the video and played around with the image and simply added a second pink gradient on top of the orange one. That’s it!

Enjoy the Lightroom video tutorial! 🙂
