Creative Editing: 24 Stunning Photoshop Edits
This week’s highlights reel of images from our CLG community comes courtesy of our Discovering Photoshop Creative Workshop which recently wrapped up. Over the course of the four week run, our students created some absolutely STUNNING Photoshop edits! This is just a tiny sample of the amazing art they created using the techniques we covered in the workshop…
We began the workshop by looking at workflow basics and how to use Photoshop to enhance and strengthen our straight out of camera images. From adding contrast and boosting saturation, to sharpening and noise reduction, developing your own basic workflow will speed up your editing and help you achieve consistency across your whole portfolio.
Right from the very beginning of the workshop, our grads were OBSESSED with overlays, and it’s easy to see why! Overlays can be used to add everything from light to texture to bokeh, snow, glitter… The possibilities really are endless!
Blown the sky while exposing for your subject? No problem! Just switch out the sky! And if you’re running Photoshop 2021, the new Sky Replacement tool means it only takes a couple of clicks to replace your flat, boring in-camera sky with a striking sunset or a host of puffy white clouds…
As well as being a powerful program for creative editing, Photoshop is also a useful tool for tidying up clutter in an image, either by cropping it out, or by using the clone and heal tools to spirit it away. For example, in this next image, Ebru cloned out her hubby in the background to create an even stronger sense of scale.
One of the techniques we covered in the workshop was how to use light overlays to enhance the gorgeous light we’ve captured in our straight-out-of-camera images, paying attention to the placement, direction and temperature of the light to ensure it looks natural. Our grads absolutely nailed it!
We hope you enjoyed this collection from our Discovering Photoshop workshop students! If its inspired you to give Photoshop a go, check out our How to Use Photoshop Overlays video to learn how to add your own Photoshop overlays!
