I have always loved and benefitted from ‘before and after’ image tutorials.
I learned how to achieve specific editing skills from them. You can find this type of tutorial by putting ‘before after portrait edit’ (or insert ‘landscape’ or whatever style of photography you desire) into Google or Google Image.
I am not adept at explaining my editing process or Photoshop style. While my methods works for me, I am self taught and a little sloppy with Photoshop use so I probably will not give actual tutorial.
I simply wanted to share a before/ after to show how Photoshop can enhance an image.
Here is the BEFORE:
….and the AFTER:
(If I had my time again with this photo, I would tone down the skin ‘glow’ in the ‘after’ image.)
I love the editing process as much as the taking of the image. My introvert loves to have something quiet and painstaking to be absorbed by.
For me- skin tones, sharp eyes and getting the light looking as magical as it did in real life are what I strive to achieve in Photoshop.
Do you love before/ after shots?
