A photographer that cares about the models look and skin texture rather than making it easy for the retoucher...
You did a fine job and I bet that was what he was counting on. So everything is good.

Re: Beauty retouch

I downloaded this pic the other day and I ended up working quite a lot on it. It's waaay of topic as it is "artifications" I finally did but I thought I'd show one of them anyway as I find it is rather good overall. Starting from the original of course. And thanks for sharing decent quality starting material.

The skin is okay, but this is a beauty image.. I think the background would better come out in a fashion shoot. I also think that the skin tone is a bit wheird. But maybe that's just because of the low quality (and as you might know, I haaateeee low quality)
But good try.

x Laura.

Cool Re: Beauty retouch

Laura,

You did a great job. Would you or someone reading this please tell me how to do a touchup job like this. I am fine using the healing tool but I still don't understand what else you all are doing to the skin. Please untie some of these knots for me.

Thanks.

p.s. Be gentle. I'm a newbie!

Re: Beauty retouch

I think the photo was crappy to begin with. And laura while you dont like the artsy-ness of Secret's photo, you should ask him how he got his much more even skin tone, alot of people including you werent able to take care of that pasty nasty skintone she had going on at the left side of her mouth. If you could somehow merge that into your work while keeping skin texture, it would be great. But as i said, the photo was a bit poopy to begin with, so you did a great job, just the uneven skintone and darkness are what stand out to me.

Re: Beauty retouch

Nice job, three things:
1. Bring back the highlight on her nose at somewhere between 80% and 95%.
2. Darken baby hairs above ear.
3. Stuur je CV op als je 18 bent.

Re: Beauty retouch

Laura, none of the others in this thread have posted any version better than yours, theyve just ruined it completely, IMO

I find it a bit annoying that some amateurs express them selves in a way like they are experts, which they clearly arent. Modesty is the key here ;-)

I have never seen such nice work from a young person like you before, you got the eye for details and definitely a great talent you should work more on for the future.

Cheers Chris
