Tutorial – Processing a Headshot

Processing a Headshot
(before and after) Style credits to this picture can be found in this post: Makeup Forever!

A lot of people have been asking me to do more Photoshop video tutorials showing how I process my images, especially my headshots. It really varies most of the time though, depending on each picture and how much I want to process it. Today’s picture a few people asked me to share how I processed some parts of it and also how I added the bokkeh background.

This is the video showing how I processed this image: http://youtu.be/0R1ULV-CO3I
