Photoshop for Professional & Commercial Photography

Hello everybody,

I was looking for some good tutorials on how to make my pictures look more “commercial”. I’m aware that the quality of professional photoshoots have a lot to do with the type of camera, lighting, hair and makeup, but we all know in this day and age that Photoshop is always used to manipulate a lot of it. Most of the time models and actors look so perfect that the whole picture is artificial. Here are 3 examples to illustrate what I mean:

I guess I’m talking about the sharpness, the amount of details and the colours. Their skin, their hair… everything looks perfect, even Michael Jackson! Anyone know good books or online tutorials to achieve this?

Thanks a lot! :slight_smile:
