Yesterday we were fortunate to have special guest Aaron Nace host a live Photoshop demo for our audience, showing how basic retouching techniques can be combined together to achieve amazing results.
Aaron is the Founder and President of Phlearn, the #1 Photoshop site that publishes free episodes to help creatives learn Photoshop and photography techniques. He’s also a very talented photographer specializing in conceptual photography.
In the live demo, Aaron goes over his approach to non-destructive retouching, exposure and color correction, blemish removal, and how he uses dodging and burning to create definition and drama in his portraits.
