Oh you … yes you, my dear friends. Today is your lucky day. So many of you have wished this moment to come: I will teach one side of my superpower… edition on photoshop. Many of you liked my recent picture and you’ve wondered how I did. This is how!
STEP 1: OPEN YOUR JPEG OR RAW IMAGE
STEP 2: DODGE AND BURNING
This means that you light up the brightness of the image and you “burn” up the dark areas. It will dramatically change , in a good way, the perspective of the image. You can use curves. Add a layer mask on them and use a brush!
STEP 3: GRADIANT
STEP 4: SELECTIVE COLOR
STEP 6: SELECTIVE COLOR
STEP 7: SELECTIVE COLOR… AGAIN
STEP 8: GRADIANT MAP ON HUE
Be sure to check to select hue on the type of processing.
STEP 9: COLOR BALANCE
STEP 10: HUE SATURATION
STEP 11: COLOR BALANCE
I know… it’s kind of orange but don’t worry. We will fix this in the next step! 🙂
STEP 12: COLOR BALANCE… AGAIN
STEP 13: CURVE
STEP 14: LAST RETOUCH! Play with selective color to pop out colors of the image
On this image I applied two selective color : one to intensify pink and the other to intensify the blue. By adding a layer mask on each of them and by inverting the color to black, I took the brush tool and painted at the places I wanted on the image.
STEP 15: FINAL
Normally I do skin retouching too, but on this image I thought I didn’t need to. I hope you liked this tutorial! If you loved it and you wish me to do more, please let me know on the comments below.
Have an awesome day my beautiful friends and go try this trick now,
