PHOTOSHOP TUTORIAL: Complete Compositing Workflow #74

Well, after a few weeks break due to quite a bit of travel and catching a cold, here’s a new episode of my weekly Photography, Photoshop and Lightroom Show.

In this episode (74) I take you through all the retouching steps that went into creating this robot picture, which was part of a job I was hired for, for the Imperial College London.


The video is a little longer than normal with it coming in at around 20 minutes but I think you’ll find it really useful seeing how a variety of techniques are used together to create one final pictures, PLUS there’s a few little extras in there too.

As always if you have any questions, feel free to make use of the comments section below and if you could share this with others that would be fantastic!

Don’t forget to click on the SUBSCRIBE button too, so that you know when I upload more FREE videos.

Have a great weekend,
Happy Easter,

    Tauratinzwe - Glad you’re back! Missed the tutorials. You’ve been working much too hard. Any time you can’t give us great tutorials, you’re definitely working too hard. ;-)

Broadcasting LIVE from Professional Imaging 2015

Following on from yesterday’s post, here’s a couple of other items I wanted to share with you…

The first is a picture sent over by my friend and very talented Photographer Terry Donnelly, which is a behind the scenes look at one of my presentations in the Adobe Theatre from day 3 at Professional Imaging 2015.


And here is a short video that I originally recorded using the Periscope  iPhone App when doing a LIVE Broadcast from the show floor…

These videos are broadcast live and the recordings are available on the app to view later if I’m one of the folks you follow, however I’m undecided whether or not to also create a playlist to include them for watching back later…what do you think?

Let me know if you think creating a playlist is something that would interest you as the videos will include all manner of Behind the Scenes footage, ramblings and so on, as my iPhone is always with me.

Only downside (at the moment) is that the videos are to be filmed in Portrait Orientation, but hey that may change in the future (fingers crossed). Actually the videos can be filmed and broadcast LIVE in landscape mode and are viewable without issues on mobile devices; the issue at the moment comes when folks watch them on a computer having clicked the link in Twitter…as I understand it anyway.

Let me know and I’ll catch you back here tomorrow when I should have a new episode of my weekly Photography, Photoshop and Lightroom video show for you to watch.


Back from Professional Imaging 2015

Back home now after what has been the most incredible time out in The Netherlands, presenting at Professional Imaging 2015.

Such a wonderful event that has a real ‘family’ feel about it, it was so great to catch up and hang out with friends and finally meet up with friends made through social media.

Was also great to catch up with friends Scott Kelby, Terry White and Bert Monroy from the USA, Frank Doorhof, Adrian Sommeling, Ronald Koster and so many more; always fun, always lots of laughs:)


Great attendance at my presentations in the Adobe Theatre so if you came along, thanks so much for that and for the wonderful feedback.


Van Duuren Media were present at the show and had copies of my new book which I was so pumped to hear sold out. They’d also arranged for a couple of book signing sessions after my presentations and it was quite overwhelming that so many people wanted me to sign their copy.


So much I could say and so many people I could mention, but you know who you all are and I thank you so much for making me feel so welcome and for making it such a great time.

HUGE thank you too, for Peter

Missing you already!



Periscope App: A Game Changer for Photographers

Just finishing off packing my case before heading off to the airport in the early hours and away to The Netherlands for Professional Imaging 2015.

But, before I head off I just wanted to mention about the new App called Periscope.

Released just yesterday, in brief it’s an app that allows you to do Live Broadcasts across the internet wherever you are.

I’ll do a more in depth post on it at some point in the near future for sure, but for now my head is already spinning at what it’s going to enable us to do; Live Broadcasts from Photo Shoots in the Studio or on Location, Seminars, Events and so it goes on…

I think as a way of sharing this is going to be an incredible utility!

Anyway, I’m on Periscope so if you go ahead and download it and hook up, or if you’re on Twitter  keep an eye on the feed as I’ll be doing some live broadcasts from Professional Imaging over the next few days so I’ll see you there…kind of:)

    Keep up the good work across the pond over there.

Professional Imaging 2015

Just one more day to go now before I head over to The Netherlands for Professional Imaging 2015.

So excited to be heading back to Nijkerk and presenting at this fantastic event and doubly so because I’ll be there with friends Scott Kelby, Terry White, Bert Monroy and Frank Doorhof.


I’ll be heading out at very early o’clock on the Saturday morning to arrive at Professional Imaging at around door opening time and will be there all day before presenting sessions on Sunday and Monday.


I’ll also be at the Van Duuren Bookstand signing copies of my book; on the Sunday between 4pm and 4.15pm and then on the Monday between 2.30pm and 2.45pm.

If you’re coming along to the show be sure to stop and say hi!

See you soon,
