Welcome to my first episode in the series called Deconstructing the Photo
In the video below I will show you everything you need to know about this particular picture. From the preparation and execution to the postproduction process.
I’m going to give you some hints on how to prepare for the photoshoot better, how to choose the best settings and equipment using this photo as an example.
I’m going to show you how I edited the picture in Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop, going over every single layer and explaining what I did and what was the reason behind each step.

This series is some sort of a photo breakdown, and I think might give you some idea about the whole process I go through and perhaps will raise some questions and maybe some of your ideas will help me improve my workflow too.

Hope this video is useful for you, and if you like it there’s gonna be more episodes in the near future. Let me know what you think, what might be improved and anything else in the comments below.

    Hi Tomasz. Very useful and pleasant tutorial. The Orton effect link doesn’t seem to work.
