In part two of this two-part tutorial, we’ll fine tune the composited portrait that Sony Artisan Chris Orwig originally photographed with his Sony α7R III and 24-70mm G Master lens.
In part one, we started in Lightroom before moving the images over to Photoshop where we removed the subject from her background using Quick Select, and Select & Mask. Now, we’ll bring it all home adjusting color balance and curves and adding a bit of a gradient and a few other adjustments.
These techniques are easier than you might think and can take a portrait that might have been destined for deletion and make it into a keeper.
