Editorial, Magazine-Style Bridal Portrait – Weekly Edit Season 2 Episode 2

By Matthew Saville on April 30th 2013

In this tutorial video we are going to talk about two different ways to process an editorial, magazine-style bridal portrait using the SLR Lounge Preset System for Adobe Camera Raw.  (Bridge CS6 and Photoshop CS6)

We will use the SLR Lounge Preset System for Adobe Camera Raw to create a “foundation” for the overall look of the image, and then we will fine tune the image using our Base Adjustment Presets, as well as local (burning & dodging etc.) enhancements.  Of course if you don’t have the SLR Lounge Presets, you can still follow along visually!

Also, since the editing parameters for Camera Raw are the same as Lightroom 4 and (mostly) Lightroom 5 Beta, you can actually follow along in any of these programs!
