Re: Effect

Welcome to Retouch Pro. First of all the photograhy and lighting are very good. As for the PS processing, she appears to consistently use high saturation and strong contrast without overdoing the skin color.

Re: Effect

If you have Adobe Camera Raw, you can bump up the vibrance while going in and lowering the orange saturation which controls the majority of skintones.

Re: Effect

Mister Monday is correct again!

I know that I am always on my soapbox to people learning to shoot but IT'S ALL ABOUT THE LIGHT. THE SWEETTTTTLIIIGGGGHHT. '
Excuse my language ladies but one of my instructos/mentors once said, "You can photograph a turd and as long as the light is right, it's beautiful."

Remember, there is only 1 sun and the rest of the world is either a huge reflector or a huge scrim.

Garbage in Garbage out.

Okay, enough for today's sermon. Sorry, but I needed to spout some Cliff Claven info.

Re: Effect

It's rarely just one thing. She's got a whole tool bag at work.

It's important to know what you've got to start with and where you're trying to go with it.

1. Do you have any shots that were shot like hers with soft daylight (dusk, shade or overcast conditions) or large studio softboxes. Can you post one for us to play with?

2. Define as best you can what it is about her shots that you like. Is it the soft lighting, the saturated colors, the black and whites, the unblemished skin?

Are you looking to learn to retouch skin, saturate colors, utilize soft lighting, all of the above, etc?

Sweetlight, you are funny! Have to say, I never really paid attention to light until I started photoshopping. Light is soooo impt.

I have to say to Cool, that it takes a lot of learning to make photos look like that. I bought a bunch of books and read 'till my eyes blurred, then started practicing. And practicing and practicing... I started with Photoshop last August (after using Elements for years), and I still think of myself as a beginner. The forum is a great place to go with specific questions, but following a book that has practice images that you can download and work with along with the author has been immensely helpful to me.

Re: Effect

Hi to reproduce this effect of smooth skin, duplicate the layer, on one of the layers apply a blur, according to the picture you have to choose the appropriate one. Display this layer below the original one, then with the mask tool, paint with a black brush on the zone of the skin you want to apply the smoothy appearance. If you want more details or explanations, email me: rs.photocreation@gmail.com
