Happy New Year !
I thought I’d get the year started with a brand new Photoshop technique—another preview of my upcoming DVD series called “The Fundamentals of Photo-Illustration in Photoshop”—this technique works wonders with very wispy hair and preserves ALL of the hair detail. While it doesn’t work well with all subjects, it is spectacular with dark or light (or both at the same time) hair. This step-by-step video tutorial is a preview of my upcoming DVD series”The Fundamentals of Photo-Illustration in Photoshop” —this version is only part of a longer and more detailed tutorial contained on the disk, but the basic technique is well outlined here:
As usual, I don’t stop with the masking technique, but show how to finish the composite by color correcting the subject to fit with the background image. A very critical step that is often ignored… This is a new technique I have been working on for a while – comments are welcome! Stay tuned for an announcement about the availability of my new DVD, which has an expanded version of this tutorial, as well as many others I have not published elsewhere! The course is now also available online at Udemy – click below to purchase the course:
