All right now here’s an image from that shoot and I’m just going to quickly work flow it. Now I do have this at full size because I do plan on giving them a print. First thing I’m going to do is I’m going to do a defog which is filter sharp and unsharp mask 20, 60 and then I will go in with my clone stamp and then under lighten mode and I’m just go around and just lighten up some of the baby acne that little Courtney here has.
Now, I’m going to adjust my curves and do a little bit of an S curve here and give it just a little bit of a contrast and I’m going to go into a selective color, image adjustments, selective color and then the reds are going to pull out the side ends and I’m going to pull up the yellow’s and just to give it a little more of a skin tone and now with my dodge tool in mid tones and low opacity of 20 and I’m just going to come in and just tweak my whites of the eyes.
Now, let me just see what happens and you see the dense here and let me see what happens when I go to high and maybe I can kind of vignette this a bit. Let’s just see what that looks like. Now, kind of like it there so I’m going to leave it. All right next I’m going to apply the hedgy soft action and I’m going to bring back a 100% the eyes and bring back the mouth and maybe the nostrils and with a big huge brush because you know I have just look in a way too soft and let’s go a big huge brush and let say at 20% and let’s try to bring him back some skin tone here. Now, I’m actually going to go to a 100% around the other edges because I don’t want any of the clothing to be soft and there we go.
And now, come back in with good old 20. Now, let's add a – out that at pinstripes and I going to take my color pick in it and I’m going to choose some of the skin here and that’s goes say, 0.3 inches in the canvas size and what this going to do is this is going to increase the canvass size and it's going to use the background color here. So there's our pinstripe and let’s do that again, although I ask for canvas size and let’s go four inches for this one. Give it a nice big canvass there we go, just like that.
Now, let’s bring in a logo, I know I have my logo here. Now, I add this logo on its own layer, so simply going to need the move tool and I simply going to click, drag and drop. Now, I can get rid of that and I’ll do a free transform and I’m just going to select that layer and I’m going to use my paint brush and I’m going to painted it with the same color that I used for my pinstripe, just like, de-select. Actually, I think we’re going to have to go a little bit darker, let's try that.
Now, let’s figure out this go view and new guide and we’ll do a vertical guide at 50% and now it will show us exactly where the middle is, perfect, just like that. Now, let me just something here and there you go I’m just noticing just written here we’ll use a patch tool and just going to do a little bit of a — perfect. I've flattened it, and I’ll print it and I’ll sharpen it and print it and there we have it, just like that. Quick, simple.
