Phlearn has something ridiculous like 500 free photoshop tutorials to help you polish your images. This tutorial series, so far, has been one of my favorites. Aaron Nace, the founder of Phlearn, shows us a new technique with custom brushes for giving your subjects a unique corporate head shot look. This tutorial is a 4 part video series, enjoy.
There are so many ways to position your subjects, set up your lighting, deal with skin tones, and apply texture and tone in Photoshop. Aaron Nace, AKA the Tony Hawk of Photoshop, has given us some mighty helpful tips on making custom brushes to not only smooth out your subjects skin texture but also preserve the details with a new process (for me) by taking the high pass filter one step further to preserve the mid tone skin texture as we see in part 2 below.
