Wall Art Shells: Against the Tide | Post-Production

Discover the simple Photoshop fixes behind this spectacular shell shot.

Follow Karl Taylor step by step as he walks you through his post-production workflow, beginning with selecting which shot to work on from all those you captured in Wall Art Shells: Against the Tide. As always, your task is to ensure the supporting cast supports the hero of the shot without creating too much of a distraction.

You’ll use various tools and techniques, all demonstrated by Karl as he works on his image: the Lasso tool, Curves adjustment layers, hue saturation adjustments, and more. Instead of traditional burning and dodging, you’ll learn how to use the Brush tool to sample tones that allow you to tone down intrusive highlights.

As Karl guides you through the process, you’ll optimize the aesthetic impact of your shot while preserving the authentic effects you achieved in-camera. The final result is a gorgeous piece of photographic art, perfect for printing and framing (or posting on Instagram, of course!).
