Intro

This tutorial by one of our favourite photographers, Tigz Rice, covers how you can use Color Range selections in Photoshop to specifically select skin tones from your image – and then use this remove or reduce red hues from your model’s skin.

Whilst redness can be caused by a number of natural factors, this is also a particularly handy technique for reducing the results of fake tan, which often appears as orangey-red in photographs.

Once you’ve mastered this technique, you can also use selective colour ranges to add contrast, accentuate highlights, or fully replace colours.
