Demonstrating the power of Scott Kelby's techniques

A twitter peep of mine, and fellow Kitchener-Waterloo photographer was kind enough share her untouched photos with me. Lisa has quite the eye for composition (especially this one, WOW!). Anyhow, we got talking about photo retouching (which she had not yet had the opportunity to to this batch), and I had brought up Scott Kelby’s 7-Point System for Adobe Photoshop CS3. So better than trying to explain it, I thought a nifty little demonstration would be cool. So I took one of Lisa’s pretty little roses (as seen untouched here) and performed a few of Scott’s steps just to make it pop a little and bring it to life. Now this is only from a screen shot of the image in her photostream so there weren’t as many dynamics to work with as there would have been with the original image but I think the point is well illustrated. This took me all of 5 minutes which shows just how powerful these techniques are. Fo more on Scott Kelby’s system, click here. Uploaded with plasq’s Skitch
