With online tutorials, I have been practicing combining numerous photoshop editing techniques. People often ask me what type of photography I like to do most. I enjoy all sorts of creative projects, but I seem to gravitate more towards women editorial fashion. I love the range in freedom of creativity from over-the-top fashionable to down right primal.
I saw advertisement at the BART station yesterday that inspired me to play around with one of Alicia's pictures. Using just lighting settings and masking specific areas, I gave the illusion that she had more makeup on than the actual photo shoot. With just about 30 min of playing around, here is what I came up with:
To give you an idea, this is what I started with. I first made the picture black and white with a little bit of warm highlights and cool shadows. From there, I applied curves to the areas I anted to add the makeup.
I admit to preferring Alicia's natural shots, but I hope you enjoy this fun edit!
