Re: Advice

Thanks for everyone's feedback so far. Yes, learning more about LAB is on my list. And thanks for the info on the filters. Can any one explain the difference between unmask filter and the high pass filter? Is it just a personal preference?

I've never studied a "person's color" (what colors someone wears to best suit their skin), but I'm now wondering if the girl I took pictures of should have been put in a different setting? Thoughts.

Re: Advice

  1. Manual Curves Adjustment
    I used a Threshold layer temporarily to find the white point and black point and adjust the channels in the Curves adjustment so they were 247 and 7 across the board.
  2. Auto Levels Adjustment with the Midpoint Lowered
    Let Photoshop do its thing and then just lower the Midpoint to brighten the image in general
  3. Brightness/Contrast Tweak
    Brightening it some through the Midpoint Levels adjustment lost some contrast so I tweaked these setting lowering the brightness and raising the contrast

Can I make a suggestion that you post a smaller resolution of the whole picture? Sometimes it helps putting corrections in context. For example there seems to be a bit of a blue cast in the duller midtones and shadows. The crop you have makes it look like it's wrong but in the context of the whole picture it might make sense depending on the lighting of the rest of the scene.
