50 shades of grey photoshop idea

50th Party Poster Poster

Using the theme of 50 shades of grey, I’ve taken a stock image and superimposed a new face onto it. Getting the light and angel of the two images is crucial in making the composition believable. The text is typeset in Adobe Illustrator with a warp effect. See a more in-depth video on how this image was made below. To watch the process, have a look at this retouching video.

A Retouching experiment on a wedding photo

In this retouching project, I’ve used the same techniques and effects to improve the look for this wedding portrait but using retouching techniques in opposite ways.

Photoshop for better or worse

Left and right of the original shown in the centre, I generate an older and younger version of this wedding photo using advanced Photoshop techniques. The photo on the left is making the skin tones and imperfections look worse and the right image is showing how to improve a healthy glow, move hairlines and whiten teeth.

Combining the best of two images in Photoshop

This before and after shows a gas tank perspective/background combined with a new product shot.

Both images have qualities that the client likes – The perspective and garden is good from an old photo, and the current model has more accurate piping and grill. Supplied digital artwork was also added in place of shiny stickers. Using this technique, the client avoided taking a new show of the current model product—this saved time and money on new photography.

Photoshop filters for colour correction

1 of 130 colour corrected photos – Sometimes a few filters will do. One of my clients was in the process of creating a coffee table book from the best of her Photographic folio.

Her photos were great but she lacked the advanced skills to bring them to full potential. Basic enhancements like this make a real difference but may only take a few selective filters/masks and 10-15 minutes. Since the client also owned Photoshop and had an interest in the process, I provided the files with layers. This enabled her to see exactly what was done at each stage.

Photoshop training

It’s worth noting that I do offer advanced Adobe training in many of the leading design programs such as Photoshop and Illustrator.

Retouching of product shots for brochure design

Dairy Farmers  – Brochure image. Product shots combined with their standard hills image background. This required shadow to be added, colour matching, deep etching and new grass to be added to the image.

Painter business card

This is an interesting and quirky business card idea. I used Photoshop in an interesting way to support the tagline – With an eye for detail.

Photoshopped book cover design

Canberra book – Flower Empath – Combining a stock image with a photograph.

This book design features a great deal of Photoshop Illustration throughout. The book cover combines a stock image of a head made of flowers and the author’s face and hand. This technique requires the camera angle and lighting to be similar. The see the project in more depth, visit this book design feature page.

Blending and deep etching – Nurture Parenting

I did a photo shoot of 200 photos for use in this parenting ebook for Nurture Parenting. The style of the book was to have a soft look. This meant having the background white or faded out. This required deep etching and layer masks to create a sense of air in the design.
