Part 2. Brighten Eyes and Teeth.
Have you ever wonder why some glamorous portraits of beautiful people have bright eyes and white teeth in spite of them having a history of chain smoking? Well, not everyone is perfect; your subject may have red shot or dull eyes due to inadequate sleep. It is good practice to shoot a portrait with a catch light in the eyes to give that extra twinkle.
Potatoechop is here to help you. Firstly I will explain the use of the selection tools. These tools help you select a section of the photo to be modified. These are precision tool so use it carefully. Off course if you have a waicom pad it will make this process easier.
There are basically 3 tools that you can use for selective modification:-
- The marquee tool – rectangular, elliptical single row and single column
- Lasso tool – lasso, polygonal lasso and magnetic lasso
- Selection – quick selection and magic wand.
Play around with these tools and see the results.
