Photoshop Tutorial – Post Processing Jackel

14 11 2010

The image above shows you the before (bottom) and after (top) of my shot with Jackel.  I thought I would go ahead and publish a tutorial showing you the various steps that I went through to transform the image.  I make this point in the video, but it’s worth emphasising.  I’m finding that my Photoshop techniques are changing.  I’m adding more layers, but being more subtle about the effect of each layer…. so I’m making more smaller steps rather than fewer big adjustments.  I think it definitely pays dividends in terms of the subtelty of the finished image.  I hope you find this tutorial useful.

What A Fun Workshop – Off Camera Flash

10 11 2010

Last Sunday Scott Buchannan and I ran a 1 day workshop on off camera flash on location.  We had a great bunch of photographers attend with a good breadth of experience.  Based on the feedback that I have received since the day, I think that folks really enjoyed the intense day.

The day comprised of 2.5 hours of theory and studio demonstrations followed by 4 locations shoots with 2 gorgeous models and a wicked makeup artist.  We actually thought we weren’t going to get into the Dunlop Factory for our shoot, but luckily the locked gate seemed to have been miraculously unlocked the night before (thank you Graffiti artists).  Here’s some of the shots that have been processed already by the participants…. there were lots of gorgeous images from the day, here is just a few…

I’ve got two places left on the next workshop which is being run on 21st November if anybody is keen to learn how to shoot with off camera flash on location…. and have a lot of fun at the same time.
