RAW Edit an Outdoor Portrait in Photoshop

In this raw portrait editing tutorial I will show you how to edit an outdoor portrait shot with in natural light and using a reflector. In this tutorial we’ll see the following:
 First I will edit the image in Lightroom or Camera RAW to make the basic edits:

  • fix the white balance based on the effect I want to achieve
  • change camera calibration settings to tweak the colors
  • Change the color luminosity in HSL to focus the light on the model
  • Change the Tone Curve to add micro contrast

Once we move in Photoshop we will do the following:

  • Remove skin glossiness caused by the reflector
  • Fix face lighting using Curves and layer masks
  • Enhance skin using Frequency separation
  • Sharpen lips and eyes which are out of focus
  • Naturally enhance eyes light and color with Hue/Saturation and blend modes
  • Use adjustment Layers and Camera RAW to create the final effect
