Darya Part 2

In yesterday’s episode we started editing this photo of our  friend Darya with a high fasion look. Today you can see how to cover basic retouching with a few different adjustment layers; curves, hue and saturation, and levels. I’ll also show you how to only affect certain areas of the image with the blend if and apply image techniques. Tomorrow I’ll finish up all the color work, don’t miss it!
