I’m starting a new segment called Layered to show a glimpse of my post processing work. This is the type of knowledge I wish I had access to when I was first starting Photoshop. Basically, I’ll show the original photo, the finished photo, and the layers I used on Ps. This is like Brooke Shaden’s videos, but I’m too lazy to make time lapse videos of my actual process. Regardless, I hope this is useful to someone out there!
For my first segment, I’m using Diana’s photo from last week. When I do my shoots, I don’t usually have the final image in my mind.. I care more about the composition and (somewhat decent) lighting. When I put the image on Camera Raw and Photoshop, that’s when I actually come up with the “mood” of the photo. I pretty much just let my mind go nuts and that’s when the final product really materializes in my head.. and in turn, in Ps.
Here’s another set with Charmaine. The really liked how the wallpaper popped when I used a couple of speed lights for flash. The wall had a slight red tint to it, so I decided to go along with it on post process by adding a deep red filter (which also makes her red lipstick pop more too).
Filmont is my friend Mike Fildes’ business. He’s an up and coming entrepreneur and his business is selling one of a kind tables. He teams up with tattoo artists from True Tattoo to create these masterpieces. His website is coming soon, but check out some of the product photography.
