Re: questions for skin tones. am I crazy?

thank you namphoto.
I often heard that it is the lightning setup and also dodge and burn.
But HOW did YOU learn it? Is there a book or something? I never found a tutorial about it.

Re: questions for skin tones. am I crazy?

man, if I had a book to learn what Ive learned so far, Id feel more confident to explain it.. I just experimented from other things I learned, mainly through this website. Also just looking at ALOT of photos, and reverse engineering-looking at the photo and working backwards. Lighting and DnB, in MY work is crucial, along with working with the right colors, making sure I have detail in every area of the photo I want there to be. So before you start editing a photo, make sure when you take that photo, you dont have blown out highlights or lose detail in your shadows. Idk if I have time Ill try to make a little more indepth and general tutorial.

Love the photo.

Did some high pass sharpen and painted on 50% grey for shadows and highlights
