Photoshop Effects for Portrait Photographers from Focal Press will take your photography back in time when professional darkrooms were needed for enhanced portrait photos, but this time you will use Photoshop to achieve the same. You will also learn how to replicate traditional painterly and illustrative techniques such as rough charcoal sketch, wet watercolor, silkscreen, and oil chalk.

Photoshop Effects for Portrait Photographers contains detailed explanations and high quality illustrations, showing you how to replicate many darkroom techniques with Photoshop (dodging, burning, vignettes, etc.) as well as camera and earlier technology techniques (short focus, high speed film grain, hand coloring, etc.) in easy to follow step by step tutorials. It covers some of the best and most often used techniques for going beyond the straight portrait.

Each effect is covered in a 2-4 page full color spread for easy comprehension and step-by-step directions.
Effects built with Photoshop CS2, but almost all will work with any version of PS that supports Layers.
Takes some of Photoshop features that are not quite up to par and gives you the tips to take the effect to the next level.
