I way overdid it, didn't I? Looks like straight out of a kid-beauty pageant.

Re: My kids photos to retouch

First of all, your kids are beautiful, wow. They photograph very well.
A lot of nice work here. I think some of you need to watch those black backrounds as your getting a huge color shift to green and it's a bit distracting. This can happend for a lot of reasons but a lot of times it's because there is no true black in your worked image. If you want to leave it gray, that is fine but I would remove that green. Just my very humble opinion.

I didn't notice the green, but when I worked on the colors I noticed that the background was flashed. I removed the background and flooded it with black.

Looking closer at the original, the girl almost has a green cast like she was lit with florescent lighting. I wonder why that is?

Re: My kids photos to retouch

Hi there,

WOW, didn't think this thread will go that further way, i thought i will get only 3-5 posts as maybe no many will be interested in this thread.

Anyway, first to talk about my lighting setup.

It is only 1 light setup, only 1, no reflector or more than 2 lights, i used Beauty Dish[22"] with sock, little above the camera to the left of the camera a bit, i was looking just to work with 1 light as i am not good in lighting and working with many lights while i don't know how to work with 1 is not a good idea, and i am sure all people will say to add fill if using 1 light only, anyway, i know it needs fill light and i can use either another head or a reflector but i didn't.

Second, here are the 2 shots files in DNG, i converted from the RAW file so anyone can use it on any RAW software.
