Color Shifting Made Easy

Color Shifting Made Easy

I took a picture of a gorgeous Stingray not long ago at the Corvette Museum in Kentucky. The shot turned out beautifully, though, what if I wanted to change the car color to something else? It'd be easy enough if the turquoise was solid, but the car is shiny and contains reflections. You'd think making this car a bright purple would be a time-consuming and frustratingly tedious job. Not so my friends. I'm going to show you a quick and easy way to make this car any color I want, all the while preserving the reflections, plus the gray Stingray logo and air intake vents.
