Dramatic Portrait Compositing in Adobe Photoshop CC (Speed Edit Tutorial)

Adobe Photoshop Tutorial –


We have sourced some of the best Adobe Photoshop Tutorials online for both advanced and beginner users.

In this video you’ll see my process on creating a dramatic portrait composite in Adobe photoshop CC and color grading in Lightroom Classic. One of my favorite things about speed edits is that you truly get a “birds eye” view of the process. We’ll get to tutorials on individual steps but for me and my learning style these types of videos were vital. I still prefer to watch these often as I’m inspired by theory rather than step by step tutorials when looking for a creative process.
