After a bajillion questions from you guys, I finally had time to record a video tutorial on how I draw and write on my Instagram photos! Let me know what you think in the comments and please feel free to ask me questions! Also, if you guys don’t have access to Adobe Photoshop CS, definitely check out Adobe Photoshop CS2 which is completely free to use.
A few of you have already requested a tutorial on how to code and design your own blogs, and even though HTML and CSS are entirely new languages that have taken me years to become familiar with, I’m going to be sharing a couple things that will (hopefully) prove useful to you. Also, this tutorial will only work for blogs that run off HTML and CSS (such as blogspot). So sorry, WordPress-ers! [Read more…]
PPS: You’ll need to know how to use masks. Check out my previous “lighting” tutorial here to learn more or just google another Photoshop masks tutorial!
IMAGE / ADJUSTMENTS / SELECTIVE COLOR / BLACKS / BLACK: 2~8%
ACTIONS / LIGHTEN AT 50% OPACITY (FROM FIXER COLLECTION) / MASK / ERASE EVERYTHING EXCEPT YOURSELF
NOTE* MY FEET AND SANDALS WERE A LITTLE TOO BRIGHT FOR MY LIKING, SO I DARKENED THEM SLIGHTLY.
I ALWAYS USE THE “LIGHTEN” ACTION (10% OPACITY) ON MY PHOTOS ONCE I’M DONE WITHOUT ANY MASKS. FOR THIS PHOTO, I ALSO GOT RID OF THE CEILING BY SLIGHTLY STRETCHING THE AREA ABOVE MY HEAD USING THE TECHNIQUE DESCRIBED ABOVE. I ALSO SAMPLED THE COLOR OF THE BRIGHTEST AREA OF THE WALL, SET MY BRUSH TO 60% OPACITY AND COLORED OVER THE STRETCHED OUT AREA TO MASK ANY DISTORTIONS.
