Leah’s Portrait

Posted by with 3 Comments

On Saturday’s webinar, we looked at Leah’s first portrait with strobes. She had been mightily working it in Photoshop to get the image to be what she saw in her head.

I offered to work on the shot to see what I could do.

Thanks to Leah for an opportunity to show her work being worked on.

    Hello Don,
    Thank you so much for recording the video of your work. It blows me away that you got to a good point in under 15 minutes while it took me several hours to kinda run in circles. I’ll be going through your steps and dissecting what you did here. What an amazing learning tool you’ve given me. Thank you again!

    Thank you Don for the walkthrough on the post processing.
    Very helpful.
