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
