Hi Gregory,

Hi Alison,

I like what you've done, but it looks more Dave Hill to me. Using any blur seems like the opposite of what I'd want to do to make a beauty shot pop. Bringing the near eyebrow back in focus is less of a problem for me because I have other shots to take a sharper eyebrow from. What is neat image?

I just wanted that near eyebrow to look more in focus than it was, then I went off on a tangent Neat Image and Noiseware are free noise reduction programmes, they also have ones that you can purchase. Looking at the image I posted, I think the skin is more smooth than I would have liked. Probably shows why we should walk away from the work every now and again - refresh the eyes and brain

Yeah, unfortunately that's what I thought. Never. :-)
But the good thing about digital and photoshop, is that we can get many different looks out of one image

Re: Beauty Retouching Help

I'm confused as to who posted to my pix. Was it the one saying that I made her eyes look crossed? This wasn't my first retouch...actually, I retouch pageant photos, which are completely different than this one. But, this was the first time I added an image for anyone to see. It said I had a reply, but I couldn't figure out who replied..LOL Sorry, I usually just read stuff and don't post alot.

Re: Beauty Retouching Help

Re: Beauty Retouching Help

What was your method of hair removal? What imperfections? I need to know these things. I know the pix isn't that great, but its actually the first time I've given it a go on the face without using a blur method. I tried to remove all of the hair, which probably didn't need to be done. Getting caught up in the shadow on the side of her face was the worst part with the hair. And like someone asked, how do you know when its time to quit. I could have kept going, and when I first finished, I thought it looked "alright". But, again, after looking at it later, I just wasn't happy with it. I've got another method I'm going to try and see if I can't get the face smoother and more evenly toned w/o losing texture. I need critiquing since this is what I do. Well, not so much with natural photos, but there may be a time when I'll need to do them.

The facial hair is still there. Short of burning one by one I don't know good method of removing it without altering the skin texture.
