About This Class


Welcome to the 2nd part of the "Coloured Lighting Effect in Photoshop CC"!

I have designed this course as an intense Photoshop training. Each of the 3 classes covers a complete professional portrait edit:

  • image evaluation & preparation
  • explained in detail preparation for Dodge & Burn technique
  • Local and Global Dodge & Burn application
  • Targetted Luminosity Adjustments
  • Selective Sharpening
  • explained in detail "Gel Color Effect" Color Grading

We'll be working with a high quality supporting TIFF files - immediately ready for download when you join the class. Starting with original file I will walk you through a complete non-destructive editing workflow.

To speed up your learning process I even made available the final, edited high resolution TIFF files - containing every single adjustment layer that help building the final result.

Ready? Let's get started!
