Re: Loosing brilliance while retouching ?

to comment your selection of pictures that you like, the picture you uploaded from your own photoshoot versus the collection, the other picture have more "bang" to them due to background, make up and lighting...the lighting is direct to face/body (or highlated more) , background is more dark...Then desaturated and facial retouched...Your picture works in completely different areas then the other pictures...Not negative way, but to enhance this picture to be similar to these isn't possible IMO(!!!)...I have seen people try this with patrick hoelck...Next time use real life background...Maybe I misunderstood your deires towards the retouching bit...

Re: Loosing brilliance while retouching ?

Let me start by saying I am not a photographer. I do this type of thing for fun. On the first one I did a brightness/contrast and the second one I moved to the LAB colorspace to make my corrections. I don't know if this even comes close to what you are looking for.

Hi bullys1974,

Based on your samples I adjusted the midtone contrast and changed the eyes.

i took pics with real life background and my probem is the same... when it comes to retouching the images become matte and not glamourous at all... patrick hoelcks work is great and i like his style...

my images are simply not brilliant .. they look stump ... not popping...
so i want to add more contrast but then my black lines are too thick ... but i like to have filigrain lines... esp for the eyes...lashes... and so on... other retouchers or photographers have so brilliant looking eyes... i´d like to learn this reouching technique.. no one tells ist... my retouching work on eyes is... dodging and burning... creating the halfmoon and make the lines a bit darker.. but the always look unrealistic... is there a real good tutorial on this ?

do u understand this ? hope so

I gave your image a try. I worked from your after image and did some work on her eyes/lips and some color adjustment.
