The high fashion photography look is very popular right now, and many high school seniors and teens want model like, magazine style images. MCP’s longstanding Cover Model Photoshop action set (which is just two actions) can help you achieve this silky smooth, polished magazine style look. The actions allow for maximum control to get just the amount of gloss and glam you want.
For this step-by-step Blueprint, Spanki Mills Photography has contributed this beautiful image.
To start, I ran Urban Cover Model. When prompted, I painted the areas I did not want smoothed and followed directions for the rest of the action. I grouped the layers and used a low opacity brush to mask back her white pants, as they had gotten too bright. Then I used the Eye Doctor action – I activated the catchlights layer, iris layer and sharpening layers to bring out detail and light in her eyes.
The look was very easy to get and makes a huge difference. I left it intense, but you could always adjust the opacity of the cover model layers for a more subtle effect.
