Retouch- Good by rolls

My friend showed me this photo that another photographer took of her so of course I had to retouch it.

Re: Goodbye rolls

Were you looking for a critique??? I don’t know so here it is.

Good job with the removal. But the torso is a bit uneven (see picture), and the darkness under the eyes is distracting. Do further D&B.

She also looks a bit orange to me. You might want to use masking and increase the saturation individually.

Be careful with this kind of content as RTP is a place of learning.

Hope it helps,

Thanks Kev,

I dont understand what you mean by the uneven torso, even with the pic. I'm not too hot with the d&b tool got any tips?

Re: Goodbye rolls

Well, color aside, since that can be subjective, and yours is leaning towards the warmer side, the area of her reaer torso where you removed the skin creases is obvious. If you did it using the patch, or healing tool, you have to watch for the tones. It looks blotchy, you can try going in at a lower opacity with the tool so that is more subtle and build up from there. Also if you cloned at all, it shows in a number of ways, first, it dupes the texture of your source and you will see it esp in an area of a gradual tone change such as a curve of a body. Id go back in and try just using a little more subtle tools and see how it works

Re: Goodbye rolls

I agree with garibaldi,

The issues I am referring to are due to the removal. D&B stands for dodge and burn. A good video here.

Below is the B4, after, and the 50% grey soft light layer I did the D&B on.

Research D&B here and online for more info. It could be done better but its a small thumbnail I was working on. Do you see how it was uneven?

Hope It helps,
-Keven
