Hey Folks,

How’s it going?

Today I’ve a new episode of my weekly podcast / show and this time I’m taking you through the complete retouch of my recent COUNTRY BOUQUET picture.

In the video “Still Life Retouching Techniques” I start off by explaining about the photography side of things and in particular why I placed some grey seamless paper behind the flowers as a background.

Then it’s on to the retouching where I take you step by step from out of camera to the final print ready picture and at the very end I add a painterly/abstract effect using both a filter within Photoshop and a plug in by Topaz called Simplify 4.

Hope you like it 🙂

I’m really liking this new Simplify 4 Plug In from Topaz and think I’ll be bringing it into a lot more images to some degree or another particularly as the effect can be tweaked to create exactly the look I’m after AND be used as a Smart Filter; which is ALWAYS a good thing 🙂

Up until the end of this month Topaz have a 40% OFF deal on Simplify 4 so if you do want to get your hands on it just use the following code when you go to the link below:
