Intro

Here we look at turning a regular photo into an eye-catching fashion illustration using lighting effects and colour correction in Photoshop.

We’ll kick off with a guide to preparing a photo – removing imperfections, enhancing details and making it black-and-white. We’ll then move onto detailing the best way to cut it out from its background and build a composition around it.

Finally we’ll look at how to change to colour of elements brought in from other sources (such as stock or your own photos)
