Hello Fstoppers! My name is Sean Armenta, and this is my little spot on Fstoppers called The Post Production Tutorial. If you enjoy these videos, feel free to subscribe to my new Fstoppers PPT Youtube Channel for the latest updates. Feel free to connect with me on the right side bar and I’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have about retouching.
Today I demonstrate how to use a curves adjustment layer to introduce a vignette to your photograph in order to give more separation between your subject and background. Because you will be using an adjustment layer that has a mask attached to it, you will have a great amount of flexibility with the amount of vignetting.
I also do photography and retouching workshops over at www.preptopost.com. On June 25th, we have a retouching workshop aimed just for photographers who want to develop a more efficient post production workflow.
