Shellbye! The pictures from dior is really difficult to achieve without blurring them down! I have trie noumerouse way sto get the effect without blurring, but it doesn't seem to be ht eright one...nor do I get the skintone right! I think that if you call a shovel a shovel, this is blur! If we haven't come up with a brand new way of retouching pictures...We should hav eheard about it...

Many times I read post here and it's like we are here and behind a big wal of mystery and secrets there are the pro retouchers! I don't think that blurring and doding is bad when it comes to retouching as long as it get's the job done!


It's nice to be involved with creative brains tonight

here is my try!

I really don't like blurring - here's one, where I did the skin softening with only the clone stamp and curves:

but, your version of the clone stam is nice, but i it lacks detail...more skin detalis is important...and the skin color is somewhat greenish?! the transition between the eye brows and the forehad skin isn't good...you see the transition too much and there is a color difference there as well...! and to be honest I don't see any clone stamp with this!

I agree - it was done as an exercise on how far you could go with the clone stamp tool alone ... and yeah - some of the details is a little sluggish ... it was done very fast ;-)

Here's another one with more skin detail:

For comparison, here is the same image megl did. This was mostly dodge/burn and very slow going. Probably took four hours. Not nearly as fast as cloning.

i think the dior campaign is very well shooted, perfect light, and a couple of prof. make up artists treated the skin the whole day like the art director & photographer wanted it..

so its not only retouching.

Gerry,

The color in the cheeks is what was there. I did not emphaize it. I figured if she put rouge on her cheeks, she wanted rouge.

Very liitle done with the clone or healing brush. Only very dark or light marks. Most everything was done on a 50% gray dodge/burn layer. What skin texture there was in the original is pretty much there in the retouched version although you really can't see it in the web image.
