The Finer Details

Can you spot-the-difference?

Photoshop is every where and it surprises me that there are still very few articles out there that call out the techniques used. I feel it’s important for everyone to understand how it works so they can be a better judge of the images they’re exposed to. The Finer Details provides a fun way to get acquainted…

The Lipstick

A technique often used in the beauty industry…We’ve all seen those hair dye packages with the same shot and a different hair colour. I’m not a big fan of  unnecessary photoshop- fakery so I tend not to use this a lot – Why not just change the lip colour in the first place? it would save hours of editing EVERY image later. However, I do use it occasionally – to enhance red hair or conceal a particularly OTT fake tan.

The Choker

The choker has been removed… Because sometimes you change your mind.

The Suspender Belt

Remember the Black And Blue Dress?…Well… this isn’t exactly like that. That was crazy mind trickery and this is photo-shop. We used two different suspender belts, Bluebella carry this design in both black & white and black & pink. Halfway through the shoot we swapped them over and then I worked a little photo-shop magic.

The Stockings

The nude stockings were changed to black. Its a similar technique to the one used to replace limbs.

5

The Background

Location shoots are great but they come with their problems – namely unexpected objects in the background! Whether its a miss-placed waste bin or a roaming crew member/ workman or cat. There are often distracting things to edit out – here we just edited out a black line.
