Re: Legs nightmare.

I *almost* never use blur, either, and I wouldn't use blur anywhere else on the body, but on the big areas on the legs, it seems to work OK. Everybody hates blur because they don't know when to stop.

Re: Legs nightmare.

Used Calculations to swap the preferable (non-blemished) red channel with the offensive blue channel, then followed up with some light Healing in a few spots.

I think it's a pretty decent blemish remover while keeping the legs looking natural and not Barbie-plastic-perfect. =)

Re: Legs nightmare.

The skin seems to be too transparent (it shows on the back of the hand too).

Maybe change the lights or get a camera with a sensor less sensitive to uv or ir, or ask the model to get a tan.

I know you don't like blurring, but degrunge at 51/17 seems to help.

Re: Legs nightmare.

Hey PanPan, this is a snapshot type of shoot so more imperfections
appear. But I run into the same problem of blotchy skin in all kinds of lighting.
I'm still experimenting though to find the best technique for making perfect
legs and natural at the same time. Thanks to all of you that tried to help me so far!
