Tutorial: “Watchkeeper” | Tuesdays With Lauri

By Lauri L. on April 2nd 2013

In today’s instalment of “Tuesdays With Lauri”, we are going to be doing something pretty exciting. Instead of editing one of my own photographs, I will be editing one of YOUR photographs. Today’s amazing image was submitted by Veneta Karamfilova, and it looks like this:


I absolutely fell in love with the headpiece and the styling in general, and decided to create a composite image out of it. In today’s tutorial we will go through the photoshop-file layer by layer, and along the way I’ll teach you two new techniques:

1) Using a bright red fill layer, set on “luminosity”, to blend the colours together perfectly

2) Using an inverted stamp visible layer, set on “vivid light”, to create beautiful, clean skin texture

I hope you guys enjoy the video and as always, if you have any questions or requests for future episodes, just leave comment down below, shoot me an email ( or message me on Facebook:

Next Tuesday I will be editing one of YOUR photos again, so if you’d like to see your photograph edited on SLR Lounge, just send me an email to and who knows, maybe your image will selected! :)

    Where do you get your backgrounds? Do you take those pictures or use stock photos?

      Hi Sean! Most of the shots that I use are taken by me, even though sometimes I do use stock photos. I took this one on my trip to Nepal. :)

    Very cool! I found the technique to blend the colors to be really useful, I learned something new today. Thank you!
