Photoshop breakdown: “Butterflies” | Tuesdays With Lauri

By Lauri L. on September 3rd 2013

In this week’s instalment of Tuesdays With Lauri, we will be breaking down a new photo of mine in Photoshop. We will open up the PSD-file and go through it layer by layer, and along the way, we will discuss the thought-processes that I’ve gone through while editing this photograph. If you have any question regarding this week’s instalment, or you have a request for a future episode, please leave a comment below and I’ll do my best to help you out.

    Fantastic video Lauri, I always learn something new when I watch this series and always leave inspired to go out and shoot something outside of my comfort zone.

    Request: Lauri, I’d like to request you post a video on how to copy the color grading of an image. What I mean is, sometimes I’m asked to shoot an original image but match the tones and overall color feel of another picture. Is there a good way to do this? example: match the tone of shadows, mid tones and highlight of an image to another image? If you would like a link of an example image please just email me and I’ll be happy to send you one.

    All the Best
