Re: Help Recreate This Look

beth,

thank you for including me in that fine group:

I will never get over finding RetouchPro..... there are so many ways I've been encouraged here..... whether it be in a meticulous, clearly written tutorial posted for all to glean from.... or, after a years absence, returning to find Doug, Matt, Craig, byRo, Flora, Danny, chris, Gary, Richard, TPaul, etc... faithfully helping, instructing, keeping the peace and maintaining the integrity of this site...... I use their work, as well as others' here, as my 'plumb bob' ....
i too am indebted to doug nelson for starting and maintaining this place. his experience and dedication are what attract the rest of us and frankly, he doesnt get enough credit for all he does.

so, thank you for making the donation!

Hi beth,

I of course concur with Craig (I'm just not as eloquent as he is. )

Thanks for the donation. Much appreciated.

Re: Help Recreate This Look

Craig and Gary ........ you guys do a fine job and you're both right about Doug, too. This place has grown so much and I would have thought it could easily have gone downhill either in quality of information, lack of upkeep or by becoming unfriendly but, because of his hard work and diligence, it's gotten better!

I'm sure we've all visited a site or two where you tip-toe in to look around and, after listening in on a conversation, quietly turn around and get the heck out before anyone finds out you're there.......

"They" say that every letter written represents the thoughts of 100 people (or some big number)....... So, thanks to you who do such a fine job of keeping us interested and well fed here!

Beth
And 100 other people

Re: Help Recreate This Look

Hi, Cassidy, I've been busy with a job, glad to be here again I would think, they used actions, not for the corrections, but to serve for corrections with adjustment layers. So, each image is approached individually, but they do have a general line for the correction of all images with a set of adjustment layers, created automatically.
As to my entry, I corrected skin, hair, clothes and shoes with masks, as it perfectly described in this tutorial , Vikki Hansen article (pdf 5.7Mb) in PBase magazine and other skin topics in RP.
I used hi-pass layer ( 7 pixel for hi-res) to make more relief for muscles and used several masks to have more modulation. Increased little bit highlights with a layer with painted white in linear light mode.

I did more definition in muscles, using painting with the brush 100% opacity with 1% flow to have more control in shadow and highlight. Link to hi/res image.

Re: Help Recreate This Look

Thanks ONAir, looks very good! Do you paint the highlights in the skin?
now I wish I knew how they did it with a batch action.

Re: Help Recreate This Look

Drisley,

A whole different idea. Maybe the photos are batch processed using some form Lucis Art. Process might be, denoise and apply mild Lucis Art effect. I have seen some Lucis Art images that resemble what you are aiming for although usually users of Lucis Art use strong effects which are not like what you want.

The program is expensive, about $170. Maybe someone on this forum has the program, I don't, and would test it for you. You can find some examples on the dpreview retouch forum if you search Lucial Art.

Seems like this would work well in batch if it is the effect you want.

Larry
