The possibilities for creative effects in Photoshop are endless. Everyone has a different style of retouching and post-processing. For some people, these techniques become a part of their style and branding. For others they are just tools to reach a final goal.
I use a variety of techniques to add interest to my fashion flair images. In this section, I discuss four techniques:
■ Adjustment layers and layer masks
■ Porcelain skin
■ Rough, worn textures
If you check my YouTube page or Web site, you can find guides to several retouching techniques, including selective black-and-white conversions and makeup applications in Photoshop.
What follows are my most commonly used techniques. Note, however, that each photographer has her own "bag of tricks."
