"Circle Of Life"

"Circle Of Life" From Start To Finish

Run Time: 1 hr 42 min

In this tutorial video, I cover my entire processing workflow for this image starting in Camera Raw and ending in Adobe Photoshop. You don't need to buy any extra plugins or panels in order to follow along. I also cover some of my thought process and decisions I made while photographing this scene in the field. The main techniques covered are, but not limited to: blending multiple exposures to fix blurry leaves, removing lens flares non-destructively, controlling greens, enhancing light, cloning to improve composition, dodging, light painting, adding micro contrast, protecting highlights and shadows, easily using luminosity masks, adding orton, color separation, resizing and sharpening for the web.

A PSD file of the processed image is included to refer to and follow along with.

    For about a month there all I bought was gas to get out and shoot, food to put in my belly, and this video. It was worth every penny.

    That was money well spent, completely changed my approach to color balance. After having watched the video I grabbed my camera, took a golden hour shot in the neighborhood and gave this workflow a try. It's not a great photograph, but look at the colors! I love it.

    Great tutorial and easy to follow along.
    No need for any third party photo shop tools or plugins. This video has helped me greatly in really dialing in and controlling greens in my forest images.
