Knowing what to do during the photo shoot in order to make your job possible in Photoshop is a huge part of the process. Relying just on Photoshop to fix an image will often mean a ton of work & time that you could be spending shooting. We go over some very important things every photographer should know to make their jobs easier. Photoshop is a great part of the process, but it shouldn’t be the hardest. Balancing everything out will mean an equal load at each step.
How to Light Your Portrait
Portrait lighting is a huge topic, and we could go on for days and days discussing it. In this tutorial, we talk about the important things to think about when lighting someone for a specific look. Just as important to the actual placement of lights is the theory behind it. Knowing when to place certain lights and where will make an image come to light. In this case, we talk about using a rim light for the hair of the model, and why it was done. That alone would not light the scene well though, there are 2 other lights in place to make this image, can you figure out where they are?
How to Make Things Float
There are so many ways to do this, that it would be silly to say we have the only way. Instead we talk about a couple of ways of doing this. They are probably a lot more simple than they seem. The tricky part comes in when you have to get many many objects to float, and decide exactly where they will be so they are not blocking your subject. Or hitting them in the head.
Making a Dress Longer
The original image was distorted quite a bit because of the lens that was used to photograph this scene. To remove distortion, parts of the image disappear, taking away a lot of important detail. Sometimes that is totally cool, and the detail won’t be missed. Other times you will have to add detail back into an image. We go over how to properly blend everything together so you wind up with added detail, and no weird seams.
