Photoshop Elements 3  Tutorial
High Light Effect Portrait Photography Tutorial

You can make a studio quality portrait out of any good photo if you first crop the photo to a good portrait composition. Open a new file 'File | New | Blank File' with settings in inches of the final print portrait dimensions at 300 ppi on a white background for inkjet printing.

Create a new layer and import or copy your photo on this layer. Resize the photo to fit into the area of the background size.  Elements will automatically adjust the resolution of the photo to print quality.

    

    

With the photo layer selected and white as the foreground color, pick the dodge tool, brush size about 30 for an 8 x 10, range=midtones, exposure=50% and go around all the edges to gradually blend them out to bright white. Remove any unwanted background objects with a small brush size.

 

Duplicate the layer and apply a Gaussian blur, radius 1.0 to it. This softens the whole portrait. Then using the eraser tool at 100%, erase the facial features on the blur layer so they will show through sharp on the finished portrait.

 

Duplicate the white background and drag it to the top of the layers. Using the round eraser brush at 10%, erase the white top layer around the edges of the portrait first and increase the amount of white you erase as you get toward the center of the portrait. Erase at 80-90% on the facial features and gradually decrease the amount of white you erase out toward the edges.

 

The finished portrait has a high-light soft focus studio quality to it and will give you a professional portrait if printed on satin or gloss high quality photo paper with lightfast photo inks on an ink-jet photo printer.  Epson photo inks are guaranteed for light fastness 80 to 100 years. Epson printers are professional quality photo printers at affordable prices.
