Hey Everyone,

Today I wanted to give you a ‘heads up’ about the up coming issue 27 of Practical Photoshop Magazine.

In this issue I have a full length tutorial PLUS video showing all of the Photoshop retouching steps that went into my BATTERED Picture:

This is a picture of Dave that I took at a one of my Dynamic Duo workshops a while back now and was actually one that I considered to be a throw away image; mainly because it was a quick test shot whilst setting everything up.

Crazy thing is, once set up and I’d taken all the pictures I wanted, I still preferred the expression in this one so ended up doing nothing with it for quite some time. Anyway, long story short a few weeks back now I decided to give it another look and have a play to see what I could come up with an this was the final result:

Having an image right ‘in camera’ before heading over to Post Production should always be the goal but for those times when that isn’t the case, there’s a lot we can do in Lightroom, Camera RAW and Photoshop to give life to an image; of course in this case I’m referring to ‘exposure‘.

In this full length tutorial there’s lots of tips, tricks and techniques that I cover including:

  • Camera RAW to enhance Detail and Exposure
  • Body Shaping Techniques
  • Dodging and Burning
  • Adding Fake Bruises
  • Adding Smoke
  • Lighting Effects
  • The Cartoon / Painterly Look

As always if you have any questions or comments then please feel free to make use of the comments section below or mail me direct to, but in the mean time have a great Thursday and I’ll catch you back here tomorrow.
