PW166 - Tutorial 22, Chapter 2 - Tender Touch

In the second chapter of our free lightroom 3 video tutorial we spend some time evening up the light on our Tender Touch image doing what I call a hand-made tone mapping to bring out detail through the whole image and make it ready for our final split toning step next week.

PW165 - Tutorial 22, Chapter 1 - Tender Touch

Today we start a new tutorial working on a tricky image with strong shadows and highlights. We use Lightroom first to recover some detail on those areas and then we do a black and white mix to bring out interesting detail throughout. Add in some dodging and burning, vignette and an interesting split tone and we'll be all finished. This tutorial majors heavily on the decision making process with an image. I talk a lot about what I'm trying to achieve with the picture and how I'm going to get there.

PW121 - Tutorial 18, Chapter 3 - Draganize a Portrait

The final chapter of our Photoshop CS4 tutorial showing how to create a Dragan effect using a portrait. In this chapter we create the gritty high contrast effect so characteristic of Dragan's work along with some colour work to give the image character. We finish our work with a little more dodging and burning through the draganizing layers to get the precise draganized effect we're looking for.
