Re: My first High End retouch attempt

I did a before and after screen shot of the technique.
The left side is LR work only, blemishes, exposure, WB, etc... The righ side is after PS. The main thing I do here is the inverse HP technique. It works very well on blemishes that are on areas that get the same light as surrounding areas. This gentlemen had a lot of red under his chin. Getting it out with healing would be a bit problematic because of it's size. Also he had a 5 o-clock shadow. In LR I would have had to lower the clarity or sharpness to deal with that. That's another thing HP handles well.
Hopefully you can see what I'm talking about after I compressed the 1MB screen shot to 90KB.

I'm really happy to have found this website. In Italy we do not have a lot of good people like you. I have 16 years and I love the editing. I know if you have prepared tutorials to learn this? I want to do this when I grow up. please help me?

Re: My first High End retouch attempt

There's a million videos out there for it. Here's one,
It may not be the best but it works.
The thing is, learn the technique and then play with it.
Once you have a system that works for you record it under an action with a couple pauses for input of those two numbers.

You can subscribe to my blog. I'll have info about classes I'll be teaching on this stuff.

Find me on Google+ also.
