What you'll learn

In this collection of lessons, we will learn how to quickly improve the quality of our renders in Photoshop. We will get things rolling by critiquing our render and looking for areas that could be improved on. After we have identified several changes that need to be made, we will begin enacting these changes focusing on non-destructive workflows. We will go through a variety of improvements each varying in complexity. We will cover as topics as simple as correcting the colors, tones, and range of value for our character and background, all the way to completely reconstructing the primary light sources in the composition in order to improve the flow of the image - and everything in between. Software required: Photoshop CS5 and up.
