Tigz Rice is a London based photographer specialising in fashion and boudoir with a vintage aesthetic. An Adobe Community Professional and Wacom Influencer, she originally trained in digital illustration before naturally progressing into the world of photography and retouching. Alongside a client list including Cosmopolitan Magazine, Burlesque On Ice and Paris Burlesque Festival, her work has dominated the European burlesque scene since 2009, which consequently means everything she owns is covered with a fine layer of glitter…

With the release of Photoshop CC 2015, Adobe have added some new features into the software that are helping to make retouching that little bit easier for photographers.

One such feature is Dehaze, a new slider for restoring colour to hazy outdoor images. This is perfect for landscape photographers and those looking to make use of the golden hour – as Tigz Rice demonstrates in this tutorial based on her recent shoot featuring Ruby Deshabille (in the headpiece) and Reducto W (in the bridle).

Read Tigz’s tips for shooting amazing photos in the golden hour (and not ending up scrabbling around in the dark afterwards).

Another is the new Grain feature in the Blur gallery, which gives an authentic noise effect to areas that have been blurred during the transformation, matching that of the original image.

In this Photoshop CC 2015 tutorial, we’ll be looking at where you can find these new features and how to apply them for optimum results.
