On this tutorial you’ll study to create a portrait of a lovely girl in a heat autumn background utilizing lights, distinction, colours and different changes.
Preview of Result
Obtain the Backgrounds pack and open in Photoshop the background quantity 5. Double click on on the layer to unlock it. Flip the picture horizontally (CTRL + T > Flip Horizontally). Crop the half we wish to be the bottom of our work.
We wish to give to the background some distinction. Duplicate the background twice (CTRL + J). Set the primary duplicated background to Display screen to boost the lights. Set the second to Multiply to boost the shadows. That is what you should have.
Extract the Woman from the background (I used the Fast Choice Device + Refine Edges, however everybody has their very own finest technique). I beforehand smudged the mannequin pores and skin, however this isn’t the intention of this tutorial and it does not have an effect on the ultimate end result. Put her in a brand new layer above the backgrounds layers.
Now we now have to mix the Woman with the Background. I desaturated a bit the woman and eliminated a few of brightness. To try this add a Hue / Saturation Adjustment Layer just for the Woman and set the Saturation to -19 and Lightness to -8.
Now we work on the colours. Add a Coloration Stability Adjustment Layer solely to the Woman and put these settings:
- Shadows > +14 +7 -16
- Midtones > +11 +7 0
- Highlights > +10 +5 -5
We wish to mix extra all the pieces. Open the pack containing the bokeh and add the quantity 2 in a brand new layer above all the pieces. Rotate it like within the image under (CTRL + T).
Set the Bokeh to Gentle Gentle. Opacity and Fill to 75%.
Add a Gradient Map Adjustment Layer and select the one you see under from the presets.
Set the Gradient Map to Gentle Gentle with Opacity and Fill to 80%.
Add one other Gradient Map and set it like under.
Set the Gradient Map to Gentle Gentle with Opacity and Fill 80%.
Let’s work now on shadows and lights. Initially we have to make the background darker. Add a Brightness / Distinction Adjustment Layer above the three backgrounds and put:
- Brightness -54 and Distinction +48
That is to this point what you may have.
Create a brand new layer under the Woman and paint with white under her, going out her edges.
Set the layer to Gentle Gentle.
Create a layer under the one you will have simply accomplished. Choose the colour #572e07. With the Gradient instrument (linear – #572e07 to clear) make a gradient just like the picture under.
Set the layer to Multiply with Opacity and Fill at 80%.
Create a brand new layer under the one containing the bokeh texture and add the flying chicken.
Add a Hue / Saturation Adjustment Layer just for the chicken. Examine ‘Colorize’ and put these settings:
- Hue 44
- Saturation 15
Create a brand new layer over the Hue/Sat you edited within the earlier step. Choose the colour #ffe7ba and with a delicate spherical brush paint one thing just like the picture under.
Set the layer to Gentle Gentle with Opacity 81% and Fill 87%.
