Post-production photography in Photoshop is so fun to play with. The possibilities are endless when you have a high-quality image and good editing software. Gratefully I’m a student at BYU-Idaho where they let me have complete access to the Adobe Cloud.

Post-Production Duotone Editing

First off, I HATE taking self-portraits, but I knew what I wanted and I was the only available female model. This image was taken with the same techniques taken from my Studio Quality Black Background post. In post-production photography, I created a couple of layers, double-clicked on the top one and unchecked the R. At that point I adjusted the top layer to a 72% opacity and shifted the layer which gave it that duotone effect.

I actually originally got the inspiration for this idea from a TikTok I watched. They honestly have fantastic and random ideas on that app, I highly recommend for photography inspiration!

It’s always fun to play around with the post-production side of photography.
