Doug Porter is a Melbourne based international and nationally awarded photographer of fine art and pictorial images. You can see his galleries of fine art images at https://frescoimages.com .
Doug gave an inspiring presentation at the Honours SIG meeting on 10th June 2020, showing his editing processes. Watch the presentation on YouTube.
Following his presentation, Doug very generously invited members to submit images, one of which he would select and use to demonstrate his editing style. Fantastically, he did this not for one, but for all 7 images that were submitted. The images are presented below in before/after views. I am sure you will agree that the transformations are spectacular. Right-Click>>view image to see the JPEG files at full size. Doug also gave us the PSD files with the layers so you can follow his edits and see how they work by stepping through the layers. Click the links below the images to download the PSD files (beware these are all large files).
