Re: Retouch challenge - Male headshot

Don't cringe. In time, if it's not a passing thing, the artist will learn that the only way that skill grows is through lots of fanny sitting time!! I came to Retouch Pro, oh... about 5 years ago and I couldn't believe the skill that I saw. Filters, plugin, and scripts have their place in the learning process, but I agree with you, training your eye to see what needs to be seen takes time.

Flora once told me to just keep working because everyone is at a different skill level. To be patient, read, learn, and try what works for me.

I took that to heart and so should we all: Everyone is at a different skill level. Be patient, read, learn, and try what works best for you. After you have some knowlege and you'll know when that is - you won't have to be pompus or egotistical, but you will have to be a teacher. Our gifts keep on being passed around.

My two cents worth.

Hugs,
Candy

Elo,

Yes, everything was done in Lab Mode in this picture http://ciebiera.eu/retusze/labdragan/.

In RGB I could achieve the same effect in 5-10 minutes. LAB mode was just for fun and took me about 1,5 hour. For sure I don't remember steps (many curves I suppose on channels, Soft Light). The only thing I remember was that one of those channels A or B is responsible for presenting proportion between blue and some warm channel.

My advice, don't do this in LAB mode, it's not worth doing it

Re: Retouch challenge - Male headshot

Hi, I would really appreciate if any one could take a min or two to critique this retouch. I am just starting out learning retouching, although have done design for a few years previous, and Photoshop for many years, but my 'retouching' is in very early days and I'm very keen to learn...please do be brutal if necessary! I'll appreciate it!

Many thanks

Not to bad, i think the right pupil needs to be lighter but a part from that it looks ok.

Re: Retouch challenge - Male headshot

Here is my attempt. I am always trying to perfect skin, to maintain texture while diminishing imperfections.
