Re: High End Retouching = not....

Funkimunkey, I agree with your second two paragraphs, I also agree that there is a bunch of junk on youtube. There are also some good tuts on there.
In regards to your first paragraph I have to say I'm glad they still have time to hang out and post on Retouchpro or this place would be boring.
The names I quoted are not amatuers, they are some of the biggest names in photoshop. I'd venture to say Deke Mcclelland has a more intimate understanding of photoshop, how it works and why then the collective here at RP. Thank goodness that some people; writers, poets, artists, photoshop pros, decide to become college professors and inspire others rather than chasing the money.
So my question still stands... where are the professional tuts on dodge and burn and why are the pro trainers not training that method.

BC, your retouches look very Imagenomic to me. For instance, the complete absence of natural variations in skin tones. Is this how you achieve your results?

bandenk, if you go to the tutorial section of this forum and then search that section for dodge and burn you will find one tutorial.

That tutorial tells you how to set up D & B layers (which is simple to do), then offers the rest of the advice:

"All that's left is to paint, paint, paint and paint until your arm falls off or your eyes start bleeding."

Re: High End Retouching = not....

I saw the tutorial mayday left..and it's fair but really not much difference..although far better then blurring as an option.


Crazy Fly you said

"BC, your retouches look very Imagenomic to me. For instance, the complete absence of natural variations in skin tones. Is this how you achieve your results?"

What did you mean by my work looking imagenomic? And how is there an absence of natural variations in my work's skin tones?



FunkiMonkey- right on!

Re: High End Retouching = not....

and back to the question of why aren't pro retouchers showing the goods....many don't want to for obvious reasons...many don't have the time.

Re: High End Retouching = not....

Also Cricket posted this blog that covers D&B softlight you dont get much more Hi-End than him so I think we can say thats better than fair.

People also forget D&B can be destructive taken too far, It all depends on how good your judgement is.

I am sorry I don't get that, you post on the forum where sharing info is the goal, you tell poeple in bold what not to do, then you announce you wouldn't share any of your knowledge ..... what's the point?
