The majority of the images on my site were shot with a range from 22mp up to the P45.
They STILL need a lot of skin work. Probably a bit more because of the beautifully captured detail.

I agree with what you are saying. It depends on what we mean by skin work. The video definitely retouches the skin...imperfections, color, dodge and burn. What he didn't have to do was create texture...it was already there from the sharpness and detail of the photo from the camera, light, and photographer.

Yea I take back what I said about it being easier I guess I meant the professionally shot photo's made it easier to work on than what i'm used to (d80 with a not so sharp lens and me behind the wheel ) It's amazing you can see the crosshatch texture pattern on the skin in some of the area's! He did have a 1DS MKII file in there to that was just as nice to work with.

Re: Should I trust this video???

I got my dvd yesterday. expensive (+60$ tax, germany) but a lot of good stuff on it.

he works on the skin with simple techniques (healing, D+B).
but isn't it that what the pros do?
or are building a new skin texture, transplantation of skin texture and so on ....common techniques?

Adam

Thanks for the clarification.

To be honest, I don't remember the last time I had to create texture in my skin work.
If it is shiny and devoid of pores from the Photographer I leave it that way.

Re: Should I trust this video???

Thank you all for your comments on this topic. I really wish the "manufactorers" would think more globally and provide downloads. It's always a hustle with customs and shipping cost from overseas. I guess lots of people would buy more, if it was made more simple. Anyway hope you all learn a lot and enjoy PS eben a little bit more :-)

Regards Amica
