Photo Retouching Tutorial: Hair
March 17th, 2009 by Administrator    

In this tutorial I will focus on the hair. Before watching please note that there is a lot of information in this video to absorb, so watch and re-watch areas. I’d recommend pausing it at regular intervals before continuing so that you fully understand all the processes. Some of the areas covered in this video are:

  1. Colour Correction
  2. Removing Unwanted Straps and Hair
  3. Adjusting tonal values
  4. Grading the image
  5. Boosting image vividness
  6. Removing blemishes
  7. Working with blending modes

There are a lot of techniques and processes that go into each of the above, so if you’ve got a question leave a comment and I’ll do my best to answer.

This is the image I used: Before Photograph

Here are some before and after shots:
