Forest Processing "Catch the Spirit"

30.00

Watch me edit “Catch the Spirit”. This video is exactly what it says; an easy to follow, silent editing tutorial that shows my entire workflow. There is no sound and you will be able to watch me edit. Even with basic knowledge of Photoshop, you will easily pick up on what I do. There's even a PSD included so you can follow along with the video.

  2. Aligning and blending multiple exposures
  3. Initial editing
  4. Highlight recovery
  5. Creative Controlled Warping
  6. Cloning and sensor dust removal
  7. Luminosity Processing
  8. Fine tuning colour adjustments
  9. Adding sunlight
  10. Orton effect creation and control
  11. Colour dodging
  12. Final adjustments
  13. 3-step sharpening for the web
  14. High dynamic range halo reduction
  15. Banding removal due to web compression

Note that you will be downloading a "read me" document which contains a secure download link. The video is very large (over 3GB), so I can't host it at my website. I'm sorry for the inconvenience, but this will ensure a good enough playback quality for you to follow along.
