Re: how to make this bikini photo pop?

Ugh, I wrote out a bunch of info and I hit "back" on accident and lost it all. lol

Let me type out a briefer explanation on how I do it.

New layer > blending mode: color - paint a "make-up/tan color" brown over the skin

For this particular image, I duplicated this layer and set the blending mode on multiply to get the skin a darker brown. (play with the layer opacity)

At this point the skin looked flatter for me, so I went back in and painted in the highlights and shadows using the original image as reference.


I hope that helps.

New BG and re-lit it to brighten the girls faces. Played with contrast a little.
