Its very easy to mess up an image by using a gel too directly and by using too many Colors. This episode covers how to use them in a subtle way to change the overall mood of your photos and which lighting works best.

 

In today’s episode I explain how to make a snoot and the best materials to make lighting modifiers with.

 

In this episode we cover what’s called “clamshell lighting,” with a beauty dish as our main light and softbox as fill. We go over the power Levels of each and how they can best be used together.

 

A beauty dish is unique in that it creates a Hard Light that has soft edges. It does not have a “hot spot” in the middle of it like most reflectors, and can be used to make portraits very compelling.

 

In this episode I’ll show you how one light can change the result of your image through the distance and height from your subject.

 

Softboxes produce a different effect than the umbrellas, here we show you the difference and how you can use it to your advantage.

If you have ever had a really hard time making a Layer Mask or Retouching someone’s Skin, this cool tip will really help you.

 

Combining multiple Exposures is a great way to get unique images and is traditionally done with film. We are making a similar effect in Photoshop, which will give you a bit more control over how everything turns out.

 

There are many good Tools to use when doing this sort of thing, but the three to keep in mind are the Clone Stamp, Healing Brush, and Patch Tool.

 

In Part 1 we are covering how to repair the border of the photo, and some great ways to blend layers together.

 

Basically, having a WACOM TABLET is going to save you a lot of time in the long run. More control means less mistakes. There are not many things that you can just go buy to make you better, but this is one of them.

 

A Wacom tablet can really change the way you work in Photoshop. Once you learn to use one well, it will become an essential part of your Workflow.

 

Photography is a lot like any other art or passion. In the beginning we get into it because we think it is fun. That flirting turns into love. If we are not careful it will turn into hate.

 

Contrary to popular belief, there is actually a reason to take images of yourself beyond narcissism. In this episode I go over all the amazing things self portraits can teach you!

 

In this tutorial, Aaron covers how to create blood from scratch using Photoshop.
