01 - Raw Processing in Photoshop
We start our portrait retouch by opening our image in Adobe Camera RAW, making some adjustments to the highlights, shadows, and color.
02 - Combining RAW Exposures
Learn how to use Adobe Camera RAW to make additional exposures of an image, each focused on bringing out detail in either the highlights or the shadows. Then bring them all into Photoshop, using Channels and Layer Masks to seamlessly blend them together.
03 - Blemish Removal
Let's use the Spot Healing Brush tool to clean up flyaway hairs and to remove minor blemishes and distractions.
04 - Dodge & Burn
Add beautiful shape and definition to your subjects by enhancing the natural highlights and shadows in an image. And all with our exclusive PHLEARN Dodge & Burn Action.
05 - Sharpening & Finishing Steps
We finish off our retouch by drawing more attention to our subject with subtle vignettes and professional sharpening.
