Phaneendra Gudapati - Enhancing Portraits The Güd Way


Photoshop isn't just about retouching; it's a tool to help transform images to convey your vision. In this program, PG discusses his retouching philosophies and efficient post-processing workflow, non-destructive editing and techniques to keep the file size small. Learn how he brings his vision to life with portrait enhancement techniques.


Phaneendra Gudapati is a portrait artist located in Plano, TX. He is inspired by classical portraiture, paintings by old masters and fashion and loves to create a fusion between fine art and fashion in his work.


PG is a self-confessed “technology junkie” always learning about the craft of photography. He loves to develop his imagery using various techniques to bring his artistic vision to life.

MetroPPA was founded in 1985 after a group of individuals decided to turn

their shared interests into an official Photography Organization. Since then we’ve grown as a community, and have expanded what we offer to our members.

When you decide to join us, you too will gain access to various events and

most importantly, to a group of like-minded individuals who are just

as passionate as you are.
