Re: a bit of my retouching

Hello looked at your work. I bet you put some time and effort in your work and also trying to share it so it is normal that you get a reply. If i am correct you try to achieve sort of Dave Hill effect. If i am wrong correct me please.

First of all your work is fun and creative. The difference between your work and dave hill is that it looks like you first smoothen the models and then used something like lucis art to get bit if punch and harder lines to it. For me example the photo of maria is bit strange in editing. You obvisiouly used some softening method like gausian blur. So the model looks smooth but on the other hand the lower hand with the cards have not so smooth fingers. Then aplying the lucis kind of effect makes it bit messy.

Is it possible you can share the original photo so i can try to look and edit it for you to see what i can make of it in the style i think you like. Becauase i think i know where you want to go with this shoot and you are on the right track only maybe you need to edit a bit different the earlier steps in your process.

But thanks for sharing and allways nice to see new work that can become potentially very nice through the time.

I learned also alot becuase of different people with other views some like my work some hate my work some helped me some ignored me. But in the end what i pick up i try out if it works for me then i keep it if not i try again and if still not works then i forget about it.

Greetings!

Re: a bit of my retouching

yeah, here are original *raw

http://webfile.ru/3702099
http://webfile.ru/3702102
(p.s. (dusty cheap lense and nikon d80)
For portrait shots, I tryed to make smtng like painted effect. So, the point was to make it unlike photograph. Actually, I used smudge tool. Some *RAW processing, DB, channels, shadow/hightligths, curves, gradients and etc. Yeah, there are a lot of defects in post-production.

I don't care about dave's look)) Gradually, I collect some knowledges about PS, and use in that way which I want.

thx for ur point of view!=)

Re: a bit of my retouching

Oh ok i understand now. You made it more like smudge painting with dodging and burning and high contrast. Is nice to see so many techniques in one photo. Keep up the work!

i like the colors that you used.
