Re: Texture in skin!!

"but did they use a form of blur." no, highlights and form are too precise, blurring destroys not just texture, but tonal relationships. Precise work is the likely method. If you look at how subtle the tones, and color shifts are in there you can still see a naturalism. In addition, if you zoom in, even on this small jpeg, you will see that there is visible noise pattern which flows around the forms, see below. Texture's been knocked back, sure but probably manually.

Re: Texture in skin!!

Thank you Mark, very good observation. When you say "precise work" and "probably manually" what does that entail?

Re: Texture in skin!!

hey vapour sorry if i turned the topic, it wasn't my intention.

about the technique, i can't describe it cause i really don't know if exists a skin postprocessing here. i'm with Mark in all he said, but i can see a high key lightning here as well if we talk about photography.

i vote for a good healing+shadows correction+good lightning and make up.

It entails looking at the skin in high detail, dodging and burning to flatten texture, but not eliminate it - moving texture that type of thing. Most probably.

Don't know I'm drunk - taking it from one place and sticking it in another, I guess. You might find the clone Stamp, introduced 20 years ago, might help here.

Re: Texture in skin!!

So far, the most helpful information I've been able to glean from this thread is, the info supplied by ray12. (Thanks Ray!)

I haven't seen anyone come up with anything else of substance, that would be a viable alternative to hours and hours of D&B on each image. Sometimes, my shoots will produce dozens of images that are worthy of processing. I don't have time to spend maybe more than two or three hours on every image.
