Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Training sneak peek, part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Essentials.
In this movie I want to provide you with this sneak peek of what lies ahead. I want to show you a sample of some of images that we'll be working on in this training title. Now keep in mind that this is just a sample of some of the images. We're going to be working on more images than what you're going to see here and also keep in mind that although what we're going to be working on specific images and using specific techniques, my hope is that what you'll learn in this training title is concepts and technical skills that transcend the subject matter, that transcend the specifics of what we'll be doing, so you can walk away from this training with these concepts and apply them to your own images. All right well, let's take a look at a handful of images that we'll be using in this training title. Here's our first image, here's the before and then the after.
You'll find a lot of the work that we'll be doing in this training title will involve cleaning up an image as well as enhancing the image. Sometimes it's going to be something as simple as the working on the color and tone and cleaning up a background and then some minor enhancements. Other times it may be a little bit more dramatic. In this case, we have the before and the after. In this case there's quite a bit of clean up but also some really important enhancements. Alright. Another image for you. Here is the before and then the after. Cleaning up, enhancing color and tone.
Let's take a look at another one and this is the before. This is a photograph of my daughter Sophia and this is the after. One of the things that's going to be important for us in this training title is to learn how to retouch images in a way that's authentic to the specific genre of the image. So this training will be valuable for you whether, you're a high and fashion photographer or you simply want to create better images of kids. Let's take a look at another image. Here's a portrait of my sister and my brother-in-law Ryan. My sister is due any day.
Here's the before and the after. Cleaning up, color and tone. Let's take a look at yet another image. Portrait of a photographer. This photographer is an absolutely amazing photographer. Here's the before and then the after. Very simple color and tone and clean up. One more portrait of another photographer, Jay Maisel. Jay Maisel is inspiring. This guy's absolutely amazing. Here's our before, and then after. How do we improve or enhance portraits in a way that's authentic to the subject matter and the genre of photography? A couple more for you.
This one is a fashion photo. Here's the before and then after. How do we work on skin, on eyes, on hair, how do we make something really compelling? And our final image in this movie. Here's the before and the after. My hope with this movie is that it will provide you with a little bit of inspiration and give you an idea, give you a sneak peek of what's coming your way. Well, I cannot wait to work on these images and the other images that we have in our training.
I hoped that you enjoyed this movie and I'll see you in the next one.
