Re: Skin Texture

it would be easier to look at skin without those black checked thing on her face.
but if you ask about archive nice skin texture have a look at dodge & burn tutorials or threads.
or if you meant something else you have to be more precise.

JennyLee, Welcome to RetouchPRO

First of all the model needs to eat right, get plenty of rest, and have a good make-up artist and good skin to start with. Then make sure the picture is taken with exceptional glass, good lighting and a quality CMOS sensor.

Cull all the bad shots and only show the best one! Retouch the minor imperfections like the red/blue veins in the eyes and any other small imperfections found by other peoples fresh eyes (like in your sample... I would have suggested the Iris be brightened and sharpened a bit so it is more prominent and stands out as the focal point)

If you are asking about how to get good skin texture in Post (after the shoot) then check out this thread "retouch no blur or healing brush" Posts #14 thru #50

There is also a good video here: "HuBBa's Photo-a-day(almost Plogg"
