Re: Retouching topics of interest

No increasing magenta in your midtones matey, curves would obviously be your tool there.

Heres an example I have a car where the bodywork heavily saturated bright yellow, I need to change it to a dark red or black. Problem is the red channel in my cars bodywork is fragile and has no usable detail . Where do I get that detail from? I'll tell ya, Channel mixing my green and maybe some of my blue channel into it. No simple move will do the same thing, no shifting of the hue slider or hugely damaging contrast blowing curve will do it. Thats where color knowledge comes in, knowing beforehand what the channels in my dark red car will look like before I do it. Works in CMYK too for creating a stronger black channel for all sorts of things. Glad you asked

Re: Retouching topics of interest

Hi

I've been following this thread and the previous of which this one is a split-off with growing interest and learing more than a lot.

I'm wondering if anyone is interested to make a sort of an overview of the techniques that are mentioned in this threads, along with some workflow, ....
Don't misunderstand me, it's not I'm too lazy, I'm a volunteer to set the whole thing up, but before I do, I should know if its managable.

My target is to setup some website/document (maybe a tutorial on RetouchPRO?) that is accesible by anyone who wants to learn about retouching, and contains lot's of usefull tips, trick, techniques, ... a kind of a summary of the threads.

A lot of the techniques mentioned are new for me, so I'm not the person who should write a tutorial, but I will try to write down the whole thing if there is someone (like Chris for example) who is willing to read through it and correct if I'm going wrong.

Any more volunteers?


Bart

Isn't that a direct invitation for someone like Kelby to just lift the techniques off the forum, pretend he thought it all up, and write a book?

Not to mention in my opinion, this has only just got started.

Oké, you are probably right.

Re: Retouching topics of interest

Reminds me the story with Gate's "windows".
And i think it's useless to ask someone for their workflow(unless you looking for steps). Since it their personal way to achieve results they (or client) want, the technique(actions) you can adopt to your workflow, but without understanding what exactly going one, it’s like just a plug-in.
Best regards,

Re: Retouching topics of interest

This is a really broad topic that also takes a lot of work on the camera before you even use photoshop but here goes.
I would really like to learn how to get the crisp, dramatic colouring used in fashion photos be it a desaturated dreamy look, a popping colourful photo. There is something about the shawdoing and crispness in editorial fashion that I can't really explain, but would maybe like some more ideas on how to achieve those looks.
