Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video How to use this training, part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Essentials.
Welcome back. After we have captured our images, we're ready to work in Photoshop. Yet before we work in Photoshop, I think it's worthwhile to consider a few things. In particular it's worthwhile to keep in mind that as we're retouching our images, certain images we'll want to retouch more than other images. Now that sounds kind of obvious, yet it is somewhat profound. We have to keep in mind, what's the story that I want to tell with this image? And certain images and certain stories that we want to tell will require a lot of retouching. Yet not all images require a lot of retouching.
Another thing that's really important to keep in mind is this: throughout this training we'll develop a hyper awareness of detail. We're going to pay a lot of attention to detail and it's almost as if we're standing really close to a mirror and when you stand really close to a mirror, you notice all of the small little blemishes and skin variations and that's really important. We need to have an eye for the detail and at the same time every once in a while, we have to step back and look at the whole image and look at the composition of the image. You know speaking of stepping back, throughout this training I'm going to include a couple of little creative tips for you that will help you step back and help you become a creative photographer.
You know as you work through this Photoshop Retouching Training, here's what I hope. I hope to help that you learn a lot about tools, but even more I help you learn how and why and when to use these tools. Well, we definitely have a lot of ground to cover and this training is going to be amazing. I can't wait to dig into what we have ahead of us. So without further delay let's begin!
