Photoshop CC 2015, Camera Raw #2

Photoshoot Correction, Smoothing & Vignettes.

Picture the scene, you have just finished what you deem to be a successful photoshoot, the client seems happy and you feel that you have taken a sufficient number of diverse interesting pictures. Upon review you feel that maybe the colors don't pop enough, maybe the lights could have been a little different or the model just does't suit a particular pose. This is why Camera Raw in Photoshop is a gift from the gods, nowadays most high end cameras will be able to perform a lot of the effects possible in Camera Raw, within the actual camera. (Chances are these type of cameras will also shoot in RAW too which is even better.) Nonetheless if you shoot in JPEG or don't get the perfect shot in camera you can really change the feel of an image in just a few clicks within Camera Raw.

In the tutorial i really wanted to emphasize the effect, obviously this is aimed more towards people who are creating dramatic marketing or promotional images. Take a look at the three final edits below to show how camera raw can help create a softer look too, using a lesser noise reduction to smooth the textures nicely. It really goes to show that even with a camera that doesn't break the bank, you can create professional images. The only other recommendation i would make is shooting with as plain a background as possible as camera raw will heavily affect the background if you are really changing the dynamics of your images.
