Classic Hollywood B&W Glamour

Countdown to 24 hrs. of Photoshop that starts November 14th! In honor of the event, I am posting this detailed tutorial on B&W portrait technique in Photoshop. This is the post processing part of my California Photo Festival workshop on classic B&W photography where I demonstrated George Hurrell style lighting techniques and shot the portrait used in this tutorial. Here I show how to use multiple channels, blended together in Layers, to generate an idealized B&W conversion from a color photo, as well as:

• Liquify for figure shaping

• The Photo Filter for sepia toning

• A split toning technique

• The new Iris Blur filter in CS6

This video is part of my course: “The Fundamentals of Photo-Illustration in Photoshop” – the course contains 15 projects, 9 hours of video plus 2.5 gigs of sample files, layered Psd documents, PDFs, etc… Click below to purchase the course:
