Hi, I’m Vanessa from Wild Empress. I am all about fine art photography, conceptual photography, composite photography, self portraits, book cover photography and Photoshop tutorials, how- tos and speed edits. I also like thrift store shopping, and all things DIY for props and costumes!
Photo Editing for Halloween
This video is a tutorial using black and white adjustment layer to create a scary photoshop effect by making the skin seem unnatural. In this scary photoshop tutorial I also use multiple ways I to alter eyes to make them more scary. These are options to creating your own halloween inspired portrait. I talk how to make black eyes, and white eyes, as well as a few variations. This image is a composite image, meaning I cut the subject out of another image and put it on a background image I found on pixabay. To see how I removed the subject from its original background please check out the video links below. When you are finished watching this dark art photoshop tutorial you will know how to edit a scary self portrait!
