A little fashion retouching

Just wanted to share an example on some fashion retouching from one of my commercial shoots.

As always, if you are careful and determined about what picture you want to achieve, it's always a lot easier to then start the finishing work with retouching.

Any comments are welcome!

You're lucky, Mikael! I wish the fashion shots I work on were that good to start with!

What is the skin color mix! I really like the skin color and texture how was it created?

Re: A little fashion retouching

Are you serious? Do people really use CMYK in their retouching workflow? It's the most ruthlessly destructive colour space - I avoid it like the plague until the very end (working for magazines, so everything ends up CMYK eventually).

Great job! I would only make her shoulder bit slimmer, but it's very subjective

when i was at a shop that specialized in Hi-Color, we specifically told all our customers to send us RGB files as it would result in a better conversion and they still sent us CMYK images...

Yes, that's my experience too, though it's gradually getting better.

In the "old days", high end scanners scanned straight to CMYK. Of course this is now redundant, but the old habits still linger in the industry.

Re: A little fashion retouching

I have done skin in CMYK at the beginning, and used to prefer it - curves on CMY channels in CMYK are smooth and subtle, very nice to work like that. Also how you use the black generally gives an enormous amount of power, directly controlling that plate, very difficult to reproduce in RGB without profile stuff. Don't write CMYK off, everyone works in RGB now, but its still got its lessons.
