Today’s photo is of my little princess! Probably the best photo of her and how she looks at me every time I have my camera out LOL.
1. Opened in Lightrooom and adjusted exposure, contrast and removed vignette
2. Opened in PS
3. I duplicated the layer and cleaned up her skin a bit with the patch tool and spot heal tool.
4. I adjusted the exposure again with a curves layer.
5. I adjusted with a contrast layer.
6. Duplicated the 2nd main layer and changed the blending to multiply, then adjusted the opacity of the layer to my liking.
7. I applied a mask to that layer and brushed away the person, skin, hair and clothing.
8. I applied a curves layer to adjust skin tone and reduced the layer to 30% opacity.
9. Merged the main layers down.
Some people ask me how I learned what I know in Photoshop and I will tell you: Honestly… GOOGLED JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING I KNOW!!! I have had a little help from forums and a fellow photographer. My best advice is to first HAVE THE PASSION FOR PHOTOGRAPHY!!!!! Then google whatever you want to know, it’s out there! Enjoy today’s See it Saturday!
