Possibly, but I think that especially on editorial and commercial projects a photographer with a big reputation will use the retoucher of their choice who they have a relationship and trust with, they wouldn't risk putting this in the clients hands. Surely not?!

In editorial yes, but in commercial not so much. Depends on the photographer, of course.

At the end and only at the end. I use a bunch of high passes at different radiuses and masks, to target specific areas of the image, just like any other image.

Re: Sebastian Kim BW Look

I would sharpen after the retouching but below the CC and grain, looks as if there are multiple sharpening passes with varying radiuses

Regardless of who does his post, it's a damn fine job, all the photos are very much consistent with each other, they have similar tonality, grading etc.

RGB channel (default), just use the mask to reveal sharpening effect. And this is why we use high pass, and not unsharp mask. Unsharp mask doesn't give you transparent result, so you can't stack different radiuses up..

I don't understand this. How you can select different radiuses HighPass with a layer?
Would you mind make PrtSc your layer?

I just explained it on video, much easier to understand.

The only part of the above video which accurately addresses the previous question is where it demonstrated that the effect of using multiple High Pass layers as a sharpening device is cumulative because each layer interacts with those stacked below.

And it's the only thing it's supposed to do. It's not a "real" tutorial, I just recorded my screen on the first go.
