Mommy and me fine-art painterly portrait | My editing workflow video tutorial

Updated: Jun 8



In this video tutorial, I'm taking you through my entire editing workflow for this type of portrait, from the SOOC file to the final image.


Techniques covered in this tutorial:

  • Lightroom adjustments

  • Cloning out undesired elements

  • Composition considerations, extending the background

  • Liquify adjustments

  • Portrait Pro adjustments

  • Skin tone corrections

  • Dodge and burn

  • Frequency separation

  • Enhancing the image by adding textures (i use LSP Camden Texture Overlay Collection in this tutorial)

  • Contrast adjustment via luminosity masks

  • Color grading

  • Creating the painterly esthetic with Real Paint FX

A minimal understanding of Lightroom and Photoshop (layers, masks, basic tools) is necessary.
