Just to let you know that Episode 17 of my Photography, Photoshop and Lightroom video show is now online!
In this episode I go through the retouch of a portrait set against a black background originally taken outdoors using my Invisible Black Background technique.
The retouch starts off in Lightroom where I make use of virtual copies with a view to using layer masks later in Photoshop to combine 2 pictures and get the ‘best of both worlds’ combining the background of one with the detail of another.
There’s lots of little tips and techniques along the way too including using Clarity for added Character and how to use Gradients and the Radial Filter in Camera RAW to give a fake light ‘fall off’ effect.
Hope you like it and as always feel free to share it with others … hint, hint 🙂
Any questions / comments feel free to drop me an email to email@example.com or leave a comment in the section below.
In the mean time though have a great Thursday and I’ll catch you back here tomorrow.
