11. Light shaping

With light shaping, you’re able to carefully control darker and lighter areas of an image, change the apparent shape and increase three dimensionality.

In this Photoshop class Karl shows you how to improve the lighting on the model in this beauty image by using Photoshop Paint Brush tools and the right blend modes.

As he clearly demonstrates the process, you’ll be able to appreciate the subtle yet effective impact these changes have.

In this Photoshop class you’ll learn:

  • How to retouch a beauty image
  • How to use Photoshop CS4/CS5
  • Light shaping using Photoshop
  • How to use the Photoshop Paint Brush tool for beauty retouching
  • Alternative Burn and Dodge techniques
