I decided a few weeks ago to watch more photography related videos on YouTube to boost my skills in shooting and editing. Slowly I’m learning new techniques regarding both which will hopefully help me revamp my portfolio. At least that is the plan haha Hoping that some of these new techniques stick.
Here are two re-edits so far. I think I might make a series out of this to post for fun!
I’ve started to brighten up dark areas of the face, brighten the pupils, soften the skin more in depth and use levels more in Photoshop. I’ve gotten pretty used to only editing lightly and more natural which could be a bad thing in some ways. I just felt it was time to try some new techniques.
My biggest inspiration for doing this fun exercise is Jessica Kobeissi! You can find her YouTube here. She specializes in Fashion and Beauty portraits. So, naturally, I would gravitate towards her knowledge. Her editing tutorials are ON POINT! She makes editing techniques so much easier to understand.
