Glamour is about the model and fashion is about the clothes.

My impression of the Vogue look is more about posture: a runway model striking a stylised pose. I didn't know there was a Vogue retouching style.

The main difference I see between the two images is the simple background of the 1st. Looking at Vogue covers, that seems a general feature. So that could be part of the retouching effort.

Anyway, my best idea is to ask her what she means .

I did that, the answer was: I don't know, there's just a difference! LOL

What I noticed first was those pictures are mostly a lot darker than usual photos, not underexposed but the upper quarter of light range was very narrow.

I posted a similar post "Get the Amateur Look out!" and I think I was referring to the same question as this. I have no problems making professional shots looking better, just not the ones I take! Here is what I came up with...

Seems like a simple overlay on the skin to me, right?

It's kind of somewhat closer, but still lacks the feel I'm missing

Hi Flora,

yes that's somewhat closer to it, did you just remove the light areas in the skin and sharpened? That was my first idea What's still wrong is the very bright eyes and lips, that's some point to work on for me, good try

Patrick,

I'm posting this because it was what I originally wanted to post, but changed after comparing with the 'army top' model for saturation and sharpness ....

This version isn't as saturated or sharpened like my previous one and probably a far cry from what you have in mind ...

I put the original in the middle for comparison ...



Hi kaiblas

Welcome to RP!


_____________________________

What I did is the following:

To 'flatten' the colours I used a Selective Colors Adjustment Layer ... tweaked the whites only ... increasing black to remove the highlights, yellow and magenta and decreasing cyan, to equalize the colour with the rest of the face .. The skin had now a 'flat', even tone and colour

I slightly increased the saturation.

I used Neat Image to 'oversmooth' her skin.

I used the Levels for contrast

USM to lightly sharpen ...

Hi...

just read the thread, and that "elusive" vogue look is not I suspect something you can create on a computer, it starts off with very special lighting systems... Kino Flow and Ring flash for example, both of which give an effect virtually impossible to reproduce by manipulation... believe me I've tried!!!

but you can go along way towards them as Flora has above....

Otherwise Vogue I'm sure would be quite happy to do everything on com puter

Flora - that's great. The first one has a nice overly artificial kind of barbie-look which reminds me of some of the works by Glenn Feron (http://www.glennferon.com/ ).

Did you use the method described for both the first and the last one?
