Re: Pretty girl for retouching practice

Um, OK, I changed my mind again... I don't usually enlarge eyes and it was really making me feel weird to look at, even though it was only a couple of percentage points, so I changed them back. This is my final version, not a huge difference from my first one to this one, but I think this represents the way I usually retouch files, natural looking, but improved lighting, skin and make-up.

Thanks again, Francisco, for the file to practice with.

Re: Pretty girl for retouching practice

And some post toning effects I came up with that may appeal to some... I like the 2nd and 3rd. What do others think or do they prefer the original, without effects.

I tend to gravitate towards the second one and 4th one....just me.

Re: Pretty girl for retouching practice

Hi all, here is my take on the shot. This is my first type of "high-end" retouch I've ever done (I have been doing retouching for the past year for myself mainly, I do photography locally but I guess you can call what I do "low end" retouching lol, as I tend to use the dreaded skin blurring technique with no layers. However I have become very good using that method and can make large prints (largest has been a 20x24 so far with no give away of the "blur" other than the mostly missing pores, skin for the most part does not look plastic and my clients love it---I have done a lot of photog. for local hair stylists for their hair models to use for marketing, etc.) What has brought me to this site was that I have had some interest in my retouching lately from some other photogs and MUA and was asked if I do "high end" retouching yesterday, which honestly I had never heard of so that got me looking more into what this is exactly and the techniques involved. I have tried to quickly pick up some new techniques to try to fit into this genre and would love to learn as much as I can. Please give me your input on my starting retouch of this photo---did not finish yet I still have a lot to do on it and a lot of small details to fix up still and did nothing yet to the skin of the neck and chest, but I wanted to go ahead and post to get you all's comments and see if I am at least headed in the right direction. Thank you!

Cool Re: Pretty girl for retouching practice

Def. lost some skin texture trying to place those images together and resize, maybe this will be a little better without both. Thanks again for your comments and any techniques you can tell me about!
