What Is The Download?
There are two types of photograph. Scenes where everything comes together all at one time and we capture it in one frame. The second type is where we see the scenes potential but know we must create the photograph in Photoshop before we can realize that potential. This Photoshop download is an insight into my technique for this picture. The raw file left is dull, but the landscape had two strong elements, texture, and spatial depth. Potential for a beautiful landscape.
When learning Photoshop retouching the best tutorial resource is learning from a real file; showing how the image was constructed. This is a real file worth its weight in gold because it was created from my original master file and contains the complete evolution of the image from start to finish, with nothing left out. Most Photoshop retouching tutorials only explain one function at a time, without the context of all the other layers that go into making the whole image.
The download does not show all my techniques, only those required for this image. I teach all my techniques on the landscape photography workshops. The download does not replace a workshop but is a great insight into how I create my images and the Photoshop retouching techniques taught on my workshops. This file, along with the tutorials on this website, make perfect pre-workshop reading. Workshops teach the complete digital workflow from camera to print.
How Does This Help You?
Every change you make to an adjustment layer is reflected both in the ‘properties window’ and the image itself; or can be turned on-and-off and altered to help you understand why I used it; all within the context of the completed image. You can ‘reverse engineer’ the image and see how the layers build up the image from the original camera photos at the bottom of the layers. Every change and brush stroke are there to see because I needed it to create the photograph.
Every layer is color coded for easy understanding. By looking at the color, you can easily immediately see the dispersal of the layer types, quickly seeing the layers containing image information and those that are adjustment layers only: Grey – Final Image. Orange – Color Changes. Red – Tonal Adjustments. Green – Photographic Information. Purple – Groups and Yellow – ‘Black’ Layers. The secret layer not found in Photoshop books to achieve a beautiful light, mood, and atmosphere.
Every layer is annotated within the 60-character Photoshop limitation, explaining what the layer’s purpose is or where the information comes from. This helps you learn the techniques that I used to solve contrast issues, color, compositing and much more. The download file does not come with any additional notes or .pdf but is very easy to decipher by anyone with a basic working knowledge of Photoshop. This is a valuable insight but not a step-by-step teaching tutorial.
