Skin retouch

I came across this retouch video tonight:

I've watched a number of photography video's by David Ziser and he does an excellent job with light and wedding photography. However, after watching his skin retouch video I was a little disturbed...especially knowing how critical the RP members are with regards to skin. I guess wedding skin retouch is not high end.
I did like the BW copy he used as a mask on the top layer...I haven't been exposed to that method.

Re: Skin retouch

Re: Skin retouch

This method is just a variation of one of quick solution to skin retouching - which is to basically blur it. David points out right at the beginning of the video that the intent is to give the skin a smooth porcelain like finish. And Skydog, you are correct this is not a technique you would use for a model on the cover of a glamour magazine. For wedding shots this approach is fairly acceptable and is extensively used.
