very special look by Cristian Girotto

Hi everybody,

I stumbled upon new work from the amazing Cristian Girotto

http://www.cristiangirotto.com/39828...io/in-the-edge

Of course, apart top-notch "classic" retouching, the creative work on the highlights is what gets noticed immediately.
Do you have any idea if the girl is wearing some special reflective stuff on her (including the face) or if the highlights are taken from other pics and composited over the "normal" portrait ?

Maybe they are painted in from scratch as well ...

Cheers

Similar effect to Plastic Wrap meets Water Colour! Not over keen but it's interesting.

I was also really struck by those images! I don't know the technique but I agree that Plastic wrap is part of the formula.

And some selective Dodge - the dodge is done on a separate layer and a hint of Gaussian Blur is applied to it to smooth out dodged edges. Adjust opacity to taste.

You mean physical plastic wrap of the girl ? Or is it a PS effect/technique I don't know about ?

Thx

Don't you hate the newer version? you have to dig in, oh, I forgot, Adobe wants to increase our productivity.

Yes, the extra interface is painful generally.
But I do like the idea of filter gallery - previewing stacked filters, or quickly going through filter previews etc. - its not implemented well though.

Thanks Shift, I didn't pay attention to stacked filters, I guess I forgot about it or did not hear of it, Photoshop never ceases to surprise me, there is always something there that I don't not know about, it keeps the "interesting" factor high - yeaaa, time to waste more time exploring a new (old) toy...

Re: very special look by Cristian Girotto

I was just working with an effect just like this, it's indeed the plastic wrap filter but the key is that you should start out with pretty good lighting first and painted in highlights will make it look better...and then the trick is to apply the plastic wrap filter and mask out all but the highlights....
