Re: Glamour retouch challenge here!!!!

JamesEssex I'm really glad that you like it, thanks. You version is good, I agree it seems to have more depth. I was a bit hesitant to add effects that cover the overall image, because I thougth I would lose control of the details, but this worked well.

I really like how soft you made the skin and what you did with the eyes.

Re: Glamour retouch challenge here!!!!

Hi,

Pretty Girl, Nice exposure for skin. Lens is so sharp you're running into trouble with pores. Buy a piece of both black and white netting from the fabric store (about 1/8 inch grid) to place in front of the lens, usually you'll want to use the black, but the white is nice for very high-key portraits. But for commercial shoots you just have to pay the retoucher.

WHY ON EARTH IS IMAGE CODE TURNED OFF FOR THESES FORUMS !?!?!?!

My Try though a little late...

No blurring or soft focus here.
Skin tone evened out while keeping the texture. Eyebrows raised just slightly and trimmed just a little. Eyes brightened, added to the highlight in the eyes.
Mouth expanded slightly further. Eyelashes darkened, makup more pronounced. PWL over all.
Full size is here:

Late entry

Hey all! I wanted to share my version of the much-retouched girlfriend. I used this picture as my first attempt at using the techniques in Katrin Eismann's book on my own- a lot of cloning, a lot of curves layers, but mostly soft light layers with 8-20% black and white paintbrushing. I love some of the previous entries that took it to a more artistic level, and I think I'll try pushing it a little farther in that direction myself.

gaussian blur
skin cleanup
liquify of eyes, nose eyebrows lips and profile
Saturation of lips
Saturation of eyes
Whitening of eyes
levels to fix color
channel mix
D & B
lighten using curves
Cooling filter
a little cleanup using clone stamp and add texture to places its lacking

Hi
Tried to make her look dramatic.
So many steps I could begin to tell you what I did.

woodztream I like the way you cropped it.
Everyone has done something interesting.

Re: Glamour retouch challenge here!!!!

I am just not sure why many seem to be making her skin tone milky white as opposed to normal skin tone values. To me it looks like the life has been sucked out of them, but just my opinion.

Re: Glamour retouch challenge here!!!!

..and others will give her an orange colour. I've seen blue versions and also some like to paint her black. That's because some poeple just like it different and don't have to nessasarally like it the way it supposed to be, like you say so.
If everyone thought about it the way you do, every retouch challenge would look almost the same. it's a matter of opinion

Re: Glamour retouch challenge here!!!!

Here is my try!
Hope you like it... Only 15 minutes of work to do this...
Changed eye color to green just because I love green eyes. Hope you don't mind. The image quality is not the best in this version because of the size limitations (100kb).

Sometimes while glamour retouching people over-edit the picture and by the end the person in both versions of the same picture doesn't seem the same. When working a pictures people shall be reasonable... Do the needed changes... But remember, don't take it to the limit... Usually subtle changes work much better than exagerated ones. This is my personal oppinion.

DJSoulglo - Very nice. I like the way you kept the skin texture and deepen the shadows. Can you describe your approach?

So I spent a few hours on this, using Dodge & Burn, Dust & Scratches, a bit of healing to take out her top, and a whole lotta elbow grease.

You can take a look at his first post to see what she was looking like that day (her top, her headpiece and hair, her make-up, etc.) and get an idea of what I started with (they were very similar.)

She has great eyelashes!

What does everyone think? It's my first attempt at this type of retouching.

OHHH!! i have been looking through and this one is the best!! she looks very beautiful here, but did you get other shots with the shoulders/chest in em? that helps too

Re: Glamour retouch challenge here!!!!

Hey. this is my go at retouching. ive been trying it for a while but this is my first forum post. hope you all like it, feedback appreciated
so what i did was:

improved skin tone (i didnt completely remove all of her pores cause i feel that it always make people look awful. like two eyes and a mouth floating in a sea of orange mush)
made her lips more red
added more eye liner
dodged her irises
added blue eye shadow (might be a little too whorish...but whorishness is the new black)
changed the colour of the bandana to blue
increased the contrast of the bandana
changed the background colour to blue
increased shadow levels
i think thats about it

any comments would be really appreciated as im still new at this.
thnx craig

Re: Glamour retouch challenge here!!!!

The skills on this forum are insane!
Almost all of the results here are more than I could hope to achieve; however, I prefer the submissions from LQQKER and TheVeed.
Photo art or pure canvas artist, both seem equal to the eye of a great photographer. Maybe we just use the same monitor, but I call it Outstanding!

i like the idea of filling out the hair.
it seems like you used the smudge tool on her skin. very rarely this is the best method. try using the clone tool.

i love the blue blackground. definately makes the whole image pop. id probably lessen the orange/red tint of her skin- seems a little too unnatural.
and sometimes adding a slight blur to the skin makes skin seem softer rather than fake.

Here's my go at it. Basically Mizuno's process with a twist or two.

Here is my retouch of this girl.

Here is my retouch of the girl. Retouching should be something that looks natural like it was supposed to be that way. Hope you guys enjoy it. :-D!

Mike,

I'm always curious when people use comments like yours with regard to what retouching "should" be. I am by far no expert (I'm a cosummate "left brainer" in the Navy who dabbles in photography/retouching as a hobby to release my inner "right brain"), but shouldn't retouching (i.e. photo editing) be based upon either the desires of the client or the retoucher's personal taste/interpretation of the original photo? Retouches range from the extremely subtle (i.e. slight curves, levels adjust) to the explicit (putting a human head onto the body of a cat). While one may look "natural", the other obviously doesn't, but it could be an incredible retouch. For me, there are very few "shoulds" in retouching, but a huge number of recommendations that can improve a retouchers skill and open their eyes to various interpretations of a photo. All one has to do is sift through forums like this to see the amazing talent of many folks...and the lesser attempts of other like me. But I think everyone can learn from the good and the bad and shouldn't (oops I used the word) be locked into "should's"


Regards
Mike

BTW, I did like your retouch. Wish you had posted a higher res version so I could better see all that you did.

Re: Glamour retouch challenge here!!!!

Hi there! This is my first post and I'm having a hard time figuring out how to enter challenges. So I apologize if I'm doing anything wrong, but here is my attempt!

Full res
http://img72.imageshack.us/img72/765...hmichelre4.jpg

I wanted to change as little as possible, and just enhance. Didn't want to change the person, so I didn't really remove birthmarks or freckles. I gave her a little more eye makeup and made her lips a bit fuller. I think she looks best with a natural look.

Comments are appreciated!

Re: Glamour retouch challenge here!!!!

Much fun with this. I do feel the need to tell you that this is NOT a bad pic of a nice model! This is a very good portrait...you captured her expression really well. There is depth in her eyes...a sort of intelligence and beauty. Isn't that what a portrait is supposed to do?

Anyway, this is my version of your girl....

Re: Glamour retouch challenge here!!!!

I found this earlier today and thought Id give it a shot.
I flipped the image tho as it just seemed to look better and made her look as if she was smiling a little more.

Took the first image and made a mess of it to make a background with a few colors dropped on.

Then set her off to one side.

Here is the full size print

Re: Glamour retouch challenge here!!!!

Here's my approach. I used the chance to practise byRo's degrunging technique. I like to go for natural, maybe I overdid it? wanted a fresh look. I'll be grateful for feedback. Thanks

Re: Glamour retouch challenge here!!!!

This was a fun project, I think I spent the last two hours or so playing around with it. The biggest hurdle I had was some issues with selecting the hair so it wouldn't end up choppy and pixelated. I left some of her pores and what not in her face, just to make it a bit more real.

A little late to the party, this is my standard fashion flesh fix. Eye tuck, dodge and burn. Maybe 40 minutes.

Opinions..?
I think it looks great, especially the eyes...love the eyeliner...something about the upper lip looks a little off...maybe add a bit more shape to the upper lip?
