Tutorial 6 - Weston at Low Tide 2


Today we return to our roots a little by covering a sister image to the one that started this whole show off. A number of people asked me to go back and re-do Tutorial 1 since it's only available as a flash video but instead I've decided to do this Tutorial on Weston at Low Tide 2, which was shot on the same day under similar conditions and processed to give a very similar style.

Tutorial 6 - Weston at Low Tide 2

Today we return to our roots a little by covering a sister image to the one that started this whole show off. A number of people asked me to go back and re-do Tutorial 1 since it's only available as a flash video but instead I've decided to do this Tutorial on Weston at Low Tide 2, which was shot on the same day under similar conditions and processed to give a very similar style.

Also in the first episode I've included a quick segment on a wonderful viewer image that was posted to our Flickr group.

This is the final chapter in Tutorial 6. We finish off the image with some contrast work, lightening and a vignette (of course!). We detour through some stuff about grouping layers and doing stuff through the photoshop menus (thanks to those of you that suggested that). Sorry this episode is a few hours late. I've been working on getting the website back up today and I had to wait for the DNS to update before I could add a blog entry.
Today I'm posting this from the QE2! Yes I'm on holiday at the moment and at great expense I'm logging onto the internet from La Rochelle harbour in order to post the show. This week Tutorial 6 Chapter 3 brings you more dodging and burning and more steps from our Weston at Low Tide 2 image. This tutorial covers most of the same topics as Tutorial 1 because that tutorial is in an old flash video format and not very pretty. See you next week when I should be back home and chestnut tanned!
Today's 20 minute tutorial continues our re-cap of ground covered in Tutorial 1. We cover lightening layers, creating actions and black and white conversion using the channel mixer plus the usual stuff about keyboard shortcuts and so on.
