Post production technique

Hello i`m i new user and i`m from Norway. The other day i discovered a photographer here from Norway that really fascinated me. What i can`t figure out is what she`s done in post production, maybe different textures to soft light, and a lot more
check it out, especially the picture Eva:

Yeah its a shame Think she`s used pastel color too. But how she`s got that skin tone i can`t understand. Maybe low contrast+desat. hmmm! Anybody else how can enlighten me?

Re: Post production technique

Looks like she has a fine art background by the look of that skin. Try starting with a slightly desaturated skin tone - preferably created with a gradient map (pay attention to the color of the light source and the ambient light in your image), then with an extremely low opacity brush, paint with highly saturated reds, purples, and greens - paying attention to mimic the natural placement of hues found on the human body. Look up references if you are unfamiliar which areas have which underlying tones.

Besides the color, it's clear that she did some heavy sculpting of the face; either just by painting over the skin or by dodge and burn. Very beautiful work, thanks for sharing.

Hi Mike , thanks for the reply. Not sure what you mean by "look likes she has a fine art background, by the look of the skin"?? . But your advice about gradient map and then paint inn... , it`s interesting. Will definitly check that out.
Found out that all these images are self portraits. And a lot of the retouching and manipulation is done by Eric Lacombe.
