In a recent Photoshop tutorial by Phlearn, Aaron Nace goes over some basic tools, such as Curves, Hue & Saturation, and Layer Masks. In this video tutorial, you will also learn how to create a moody look with color contrast as well as restoring skin tone.
These techniques are great to add a little punch to an image that you may feel is a little lack-luster.
Finding the balance between coloring and skin tone can be difficult, but if you use the techniques in this episode you will be able to change the opacity of each layer to find the balance that works for you!
Side note: be sure to watch all the way through and enjoy some funny outtakes. He phlearned all over the place.
