Re: bright / white skin like Kristian Schuller

Thanks andyong,

I have a feeling that like all the pictures that we try and replicate, one must start with a very well lit picture and concept.

Starting with an already great picture will yield a unique great picture.

Exactly, this is the point, before i thought that only a great camera is making it easier, but now after the practice i use 2 things, great cameras and great lighting to get great results overall, so then even if i don't use photoshop the results will still be acceptable un-retouched.

In this case, i am hoping when i travel to New York "one Capital of fashion in the world beside big names cities" i will try to learn about lighting and photoshop together there if i can find the time i will be there, but if i will choose one then definitely i will choose lighting workshop.

Sorry to make you feel like the ass your trying so hard to be, but its not meant to look natural or even attractive, but to simply see how white I could make the skin without losing the texture. You have been around long enough to know that for some projects that is the goal people are trying to reach. I posted the image to help those who were going to that extreme look being that I have read so many topics on how to get it. It can always be toned down and the opacity can be pulled back, but I wanted to see how far it could be taken.

Sorry again, but i feel turning it to white look distracting it a lot more than enhancing the photo, to be honest i prefer if it is high key or blown out than to be that white face free-details one, there are ways to do that without changing the look, but to me the retouch change the look overdone.

I think the best way to get that white look is to use some kind of white Make-up to give natural white for easier retouch, but if you mean that you just do that retouch to show the white skin then i will tell you that you did a perfect job, but brrrrrrrrrrrr, cold feeling or fear feeling maybe.

Re: bright / white skin like Kristian Schuller

Can you make the skin white and only the skin without bothering the other parts of the image? I thought that was the point. White skin, not white image. If you do the whole image it can look as though there is too much light and the image is simply washed out and there is nothing new looking about that.

I swear that you will say that.
Yes i can do if i select only the parts i want, but it is ashamed to say that i don't know how to select the face accurately and some parts of the skin, so if i will do that then easy to apply retouch only on the selected areas.
