Photoshop Retouching Techniques: Fashion Editorial

with Timothy Sexton

Video: Welcome

My name is Timothy Sexton. I am a professional Retoucher in New York City, working in the fashion industry. Retouching is a passion of mine that I just happened to get paid for. Retouching Editorial work is a favorite aspect of my job. I believe Fashion Editorial photography is the most interesting form of fine art accessible to everyone. In this course, I will be using three different images to illustrate three specific aspects of imaging. Body shaping, using Liquify and Transform to help with the overall composition of the image. Fixing hair using the proper tools and settings to keep the photographer's vision from the shoot.

Tailoring clothes and working wrinkles with the idea of making the garments expensive feeling. I will also be showing you how to best use your Wacom tablet and stylus pen in conjunction with brush settings in Photoshop. Understanding the technical aspects of Photoshop is important to improve your workflow. Ideally, you want to get to a point but you don't thing about the moves and the settings you need to make they become instinct as you work through your images. At the same time that the technical skill is important, you don't want to lose sight of your instincts as an artist. It's your sensibilities in the end that will make your work stand out.

So let's get to it.
