Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Enhancing muscles, part of Photoshop CS5: Athletic Retouching Projects.
With this photograph, we are going to learn some interesting techniques, and what…we're going to do is we're going to create something that's a bit more of a…photo illustration than it is photo-realism.…One of the first things that I want to do hear is work on the muscles, because I…want to create an image, or a little project, that kind of illustrates or exudes…this idea of strength.…Well, you'll notice in the Layers panel, we have two exposures: one where the…back is in this posture here, then another one where it's a little bit more…flared out, where the lats are a little but stronger.…So I'm going to bring these two postures together.…
In order to do that, we are going to use some masking.…So we need to first align things before we do our masking.…A great way to align multiple frames is to use the Difference blending mode.…With this blending mode, we can then reposition this, and I'll go ahead and just…reposition this one way and then another, and try to get this to a pretty good…spot where we can see this is lining up, and we can almost envision those lats…
