The main focus of this workshop was on Adjustment Layers and the difference between them. 

This is the original image I worked on during this workshop.

I began by using the quick selection tool to select the subject in the image.

I then used the quick mask tool to mask my selection.

I then used a basic brush tool to mask those parts missed by the quick mask tool, especially around the hair of the subject.

I then inversed the image so the background was selected rather than the subject in the photograph.

I then created a new levels adjustment layer so I could set the tonal range of the image and adjust the contrast.Screen shot 2013-03-16 at 6.25.02 PM

These are two rough examples of how the levels adjustment layer can be used.

I then created a new curves adjustment layer in order to be able to refine the adjustments made by the levels layer.

I then created a new selective colour adjustment layer to enable me to adjust the mood of the image through changing the background.

I mainly adjusted the neural colours in this photograph when working with the selective colour layer.Screen shot 2013-03-16 at 6.28.03 PM

I then created a new Hue/Saturation adjustment layer.
