Geometric Effects

One of our senior graphic designers, Margie Rosenstein, asked me to watch the new season intro for So You Think You Can Dance so I could see the geometric, vector-looking video graphics that were used in it. They combined a da Vinci-style mechanical rendering with a Minority Report-like computerized vector effect that was freakin’ cool.


Quickly Trim Eyebrows in Photoshop

This retouch requires you to pick up one part of your image to cover up another part of it, and, of course, Lightroom doesn’t have any way to do that. But, luckily, this is the stuff Photoshop is made for. This technique is actually very simple and very quick, but has a big impact when it comes to your subject having perfect eyebrows every time.


Removing Eye Veins

Technically, you can remove some eye veins while you’re in Lightroom using the Spot Removal tool, but if you’ve ever tried it, it’s pretty tricky and the results are…well…let’s say there’s a reason we almost always jump over to Photoshop for a retouch like this.


Creating a Dreamy Focus Effect

This is an effect I get asked about a lot, because I use it a lot. The particular thing I get asked is, “How do you get that look where your image looks sharp, but soft at the same time?” Well, it’s actually really simple, but don’t tell anybody it’s this simple, because I’d prefer that people thought I had to pull off some serious Photoshop magic to make this happen. LOL!
