Shoot and Edit – Matthew Close Up

May 15th, 2011 | Posted by Andie in Photography | Photoshop

Post processing isn’t currently my strongest point in photography. I’m not bad at photoshop, it’s just that i’ve never really experimented outside of my comfort zone, which while does get slightly bigger every now and again isn’t at the level I’d like it to be at.

So I was absolutely delighted when I came across Ashley Sisks blog. Every week she does a Shoot and Edit meme, and goes through what her post processing was for her photo that week. So I’ve jumped on and followed (with my own variation) her tutorial for this week.

This was my first time that I can recall that I had used Levels, Gradients Maps etc within the Layers. Why? Because I didn’t know that I could. I had used them by going Image -> Adjustments before but found that using them within the Layers tab added a whole new view on what I could do, and also made it so much easier to tweak.

And heres my photoshop layers:

I’m quite happy with the final result, I think it gives Matthews face a softer and warmer feel to it and brightens the blues in his eyes
