Ok, I'm making my first post, and also, I'm mexican, so excuse my english, ok?

Well, I did a photo session with my in-law, it came good, but the best pic was a little yellow, and had some mistakes to retouch, so I began, then the result it's attached, but wanna now your point of view.

Also, if someone wish to come up with something, please be my guess.

Your English is much better than my Spanish!

I thought you did an excellent job isolating the woman from the background. The hair looks very natural.

Ideas (see attachment: Original on left):
1. Perhaps lighten a little with Levels or Curves
2. Sharpen hair and eyes to bring out detail and highlights

Welcome to RetouchPRO. I hope this helps.

Thanks Danny, well, I had to know english since child, family thing.

The highlights in hair are great in your work, the problem it's the sharpen get the skin, and of course, for the compression of the jpg file, the skin now looks like lizard skin.

I really don't like to use sharpen until the final art it's ready. I'm not photographer, I'm publisher designer and this pic was for a campaign. So the final art it's very sharpen, well, nicely.

Thanks for the tips, and yes, the colors looks great on yours.

Hello-- welcome to RP. Your english sounds fine to me Not bad on the retouch...it still looks a tad yellow to me and I do think she needs bottom teeth...otherwise she will end up with a "dentures" look. I bet she can't wait to get those braces off though! You will have to take some new photos then, when she can really SMILE! I tried a version (quickly though) to replace the teeth. Cheers!

Hi studioj,

Your work looks great.

I'm also a newbie trying to retouch similar glamour pics.

How did you seperate the model from the background? I'm having a hard time trying to do this with similar pics.

How can I add some warmth and gloss to the skin? Any quick tips?

Cheers,

Minskie

First thing, the background, I'm a trully fan of Russell Brown Videos.

www.russellbrown.com He shows tips and techniques to do all faster.

I have been working a little with Photoshop for 7 years, since Photoshop 4.0, but with those Videos I can do all faster.

For the sking glow, well, it's not a method really, I think you can try different ways to doit, but You know?, I log almost everyday to www.glennferon.com He's great at retouching, and I copy his skin colors, well, the finished ones, then I try with every picture that I have to get those colors.

First I ecqualize with levels or curves the light in the skin, to match Glenn's pic, and then, I check on values and use Selective color to increase o decrease. That's the easier way.
