High Clarity Photoshop Tutorial
Open an image into Photoshop. This effect works best for portraits rather than landscapes.
First, to practice non-destructive editing, we’ll convert the layer to a Smart Object. Doing this will allow us to use Smart Filters that let you change the filter settings at any time.
Choose image > Adjustments > Shadows/Highlights. Adjust the Shadows slider to about 50% so that the shadows are more visible.
Now we are going to add a harsh lighting
photo effect. In the Layers palette, click on the
button then choose Black & White.
In the Black & White settings, click on Auto then click OK.
