Dissecting ZEmotion

I saw a lot of interesting photos in this photographer's flickr page. Maybe it's good to share it here so that someone can dissect her techniques, and the rest of us can learn.

Re: Dissecting ZEmotion

Beautiful work. I've come across her profile on Model Mayhem (http://www.modelmayhem.com/265104) and was very impressed.

I can't be sure without seeing the before images, but it looks like quite a bit of structural reshaping for symmetry and to enhance expression.

Looks like she takes each image and tailors her retouching to enhance the emotional impact through color, values, and composition. She (or her retoucher) is very versitle - I like that.

Her values are very precise, so I'm guessing curves adjustment layers masked to varying luminosity were used.

Great find. I'll mail her now to see if I can get some more info.

Re: Dissecting ZEmotion

Here's what she said:

"Hi,

I do most of my own retouching, there're no special techniques, every bit of skin is done bit by bit. Colours are done per image based on how I feel about it, there's no set templates and I do not use actions.

Thanks.

Jingna"

Re: Dissecting ZEmotion

I suppose you can call this "the highest level of retouching". LOL!
