Welcome to my video blog of technical skills. I’m looking forward to documenting existing skills in photography and Photoshop, as well as documenting new and improved ways on existing topics once I find them.
Photography can be a closed community where everyone feels like they need to keep their new discoveries to themselves. In this series, you will learn what I learn, good or bad.
I’ve found that high end retouching is even more cut off to help. It’s difficult to find out what’s happening in the industry and advanced techniques. I’m hoping to discover clever ways to edit images to produce amazing results.
Also looking forward to improving my video and presentation skills. I hope it will be a fun series where we all learn something new.
Ever wanted to see how we retouch and stylise our images? We’ve put together a video that runs through our techniques for creating a polished, magazine ready image. We cover tools and techniques in Photoshop such as Spot Healing brush, Clone Stamp tool, Skin Tone blending, Eye Colouring, Sharpening, Frequency Separation, removing unwanted background objects, creating specular highlights, dodge & burn and much more.
Retouching is a way to bring the most out of your image and really give it that bit of extra punch for the viewer. Like make-up and hairstyling, retouching is a digital way to conceal and remove any unwanted objects from your captured image. In this tutorial, we will show you how to make subtle changes to ensure you end up with a natural image worthy of any magazine cover.
Grab your favourite beverage and relax while you watch in real-time as we edit an image from the Custom Tattooz Magazine calendar photo shoot.
