  • Portraiture Photoshop help

    You prob had this question asked many times before but I really want to know how people get their photos to look so perfect.
    Like this:

    or even something simple like this:

    Looks better than my photos.
    I have this photo but it just doesn't look good.

    This is the original photo I took


    And this is the best I can get it.

    Using this tutorial: http://www.photoshoptalent.com/photo...g-freckles.php

    But it still doesn't look that good. The colour and lighting isn't good.
    Any tips, tutorials, or ideas I can use to improve the photo.

    Make the shot as close to perfect in the camera as you can - don't depend on Photoshop to salvage a bad photo.

      Thanks for the feedback guys. I am worried that the E is not obvious enough. Do you think that's the case? Or do you think maybe it doesn't matter so much?

      I wouldn't show sketches. You're demonstrating your propensity to give away your work for free, without any sort of contract or agreement to terms. It's a bad precedent and it makes it more likely in...

      It took me a few seconds, but instead of AMP D, it says AMPED. It's clever making an electrical plug from the E and D. The abbreviation "amp' has a bunch of definitions, like amplifier or ampere....

      It's been my experience that when clients see rough sketches, they are typically unable to envision a sketch becoming a finished product. They also see it as unfinished and seem to feel an urge to want...
