Legs Up Fashion | Post-Production

Follow Karl step by step through his retouching and editing process.

In this sequel to Legs Up Fashion Shoot, he begins by selecting two images to work with, each one containing elements he wants to use in the final one. To combine them, he uses layer masks, rubbing through to incorporate parts of each one into a new merged layer.

You’ll see Karl use the nudge command, the distort tool and the liquify tool, as well as the healing brush and the clone stamp tool. He goes on to use the lasso tool, add noise and Gaussian blur, and make colour corrections by adjusting hue and saturation.

In addition to burning and dodging to boost contrast and three-dimensionality where necessary, Karl creates a solar curve to help him spot any final fixes.

By watching a master at work, you’ll pick up a host of useful tricks and improve your post-production workflow.

  • Post-production techniques for fashion photography

  1. thank you karl for amazing class, h’m just asking if we could get the raw fails of shooting for practice ?

    1. Hi no i’m afraid for copyright protection and some model release reasons we are unable to provide RAW files from all of our shoots. We do provide some RAW files that go along with some of our post production classes and they can be found in our ‘downloads’ section or with the appropriate class.
