Photo retouching

 
So hallo again and I welcome you in Photo retouching tutorial. In this one we will take a photo and apply some effects. Moreover we will change levels of the photos and even the look of the objects (this time portraits).

And let's begin this one, shall we? I found this picture when surfing the internet and. I've chosen this one because it is a big resolution picture and it has not very mush objects.  You can see the link on the top of the page.

Here I have it already on Photoshop ready to play.

First I would like to create a lighter light source on the top and for this I'm going to use black to white gradient, on a new layer, blending mode set to color dodge.

Well in the first part of this tutorial we'll use a lot of gradients.

And this is another....

Crate a new layer and overlay it with something like blue to transparency gradient. The blending mode is Color here.

Next step: switch to quick mask (Q). Use black to white gradient set the areas that you want to select (and VS - which you don't want to be created)

And here we have the mask are as a selection. Create a new layer and overlay this selected area with black to transparency gradient. This way we have created more contrast between highlighted and shadow areas.

Next step: Create another layer. Set its layer mode to Soft light and fill it with 2 or 3 reflected type blue gradients.

This way I want to create more blue around and in the girl's eyes. But overlaying with this gradient did not mush of effects so we will pick up soft brush, set the flow jitter to about 2%-5%, set the mode to Screen or Overlay and do some freehand drawing.
