How are Schoellers Close Up Pictures Retouched?

The "close up" series of celebs are great pictures, I believe shot on medium format film (NPZ 800?), great attention to detail regards lighting etc. I just wondered if you guys noticed any retouching ? very subtle if there is. How could you recreate these pictures do you think ?

Thanks

Schoeller shoots his close-ups with the Mamiya RZ, he uses a longer lens.

the only way to recreate it, is to use the same lighting as he does, just looking at one image tells you exactly what he is using for all of them.

Schoellers uses old and very unusual continuous lights used in cinematography. These are very hard lights that accentuate skin textures and imperfections. So these images are more to do with lighting than retouching.

Re: How are Schoellers Close Up Pictures Retouched?

what is meant by 'continuous lighting'? and if anyone would care to link to a basic photography lighting site or tutorial, i'd love to see it. i'm familiar with some types and techniques, but it would be nice to have a good, reference page to see.

His Close-ups are most likely KINO flows.. the flourescent tubes.. But the same effect can be created with softboxes..
But Kino's have that special light...From the shot's I saw they are not harsh cinema lighting at all.. Actually really soft lighting...
