In this Episode – Professional Portrait Retouch Using LR4

In this Lightroom 4 tutorial episode, we will be working through a full professional portrait retouch using the SLR Lounge LR4 Preset System. This beautiful portrait image was shot and provided to us by SLR Lounger Matthew Turner of http://mikewhiskeytango.com.

Matthew originally posted this image in our forum to get our thoughts on his post production styling. What better to show you all than to simply post produce his image in a tutorial? Thanks Matt for submitting such a well shot image. From the lighting to the pose and composition, Matt did a wonderful job in creating this head shot.
