Re: Glamour portrait workflow...

Here is a typical workflow on a closeup portrait.

Make a safety copy of the original first. Crop as necessary. Next adjust the basic brightness, black levels, contrast and color levels before you start the skin related work. Next heal blemishes, smooth skin, replace skin texture, do eye makeup, do lips, do makeup contouring on chin, cheeks, nose and forehead, fix hair. Re-balance all elements in the image. Save the image now in PSD format to retain any layers you may have used...then... Make a duplicate of this image and flatten all the layers, then output to jpeg and web.

There are many workflows. This one assumes you want to adjust all the basic levels and get them right first before you start work on the sensitive facial retouching and electronic makeup work. It also assumes you want to save all your hard won layers and yet still output a small size jpeg image for web output.

Cheers,

Ray12

Re: Glamour portrait workflow...

I shoot against a bluescreen. I then extract the model. Find a stock image or make a suitable baground in Photoshop or 3d application.
Correct the colors so the colors match.
Then I use a action that makes ten different layers with different blending modes. I use one for whitening teeth, one for eye shadow, lip gloss, rouge, dodge and burn, local color correcting and so on. And one for healing of all sorts.This is done I flatten and go to part two to fix the skin so its even. After this I try to find some suitable overall effects.

Re: Glamour portrait workflow...

I do have a workflow that I JUST made for this image:

http://i33.tinypic.com/2ihrlzl.jpg

Its a PSD file and I will send it to anyone who e-mails me at couture.retouch@gmail.com


Its not a tutorial, just a step by step of what I do. The first sub-file is done using curves for lighting, and selective colors for the rest.

Re: Glamour portrait workflow...

Insensitive,

Thanks again for the PSD.. but i have two questions if you don't mind.

Layer named "reads and yellows": Are you using the color balance? or using hue/sat to reduce the colors selectivly?

and

Layer named "skin": Is that only D&B?
