Tutorial – Adjustment Layers

Shakti

People are always asking me how I add the highlights and shadows on my pictures. Of course, a lot of that are my windlight settings. But I also play around a little bit in photoshop. I do some dodge and burn, which I used on my hair in this picture. Using curves on adjustment layers is another thing I do sometimes, but it’s really not that obvious. It’s a very minor adjustment that I think adds a little more depth to an image. I’m not sure how useful you’ll find this technique, but here it is anyways.

I just did this image for fun because I’ve been dying to use the Shakti Face Jewelry by Eshi Otawara so I’ve decided to submit this into the Glam Affair Amberly contest. If you haven’t heard about the contest, click on over and check out the awesome linden prizes. It’s always fun to enter a contest, it really motivates me to work a bit harder. I hope you guys enter it too!
