  • Baby Oil

    Hey Everyone,

    I've been asked to retouch some photos, and one area they wanted me to clean up was the are where the skin has baby oil on it.

    I know it'll take awhile, but I'm wondering what techniques you all would be the best. I try to make things look as un-photoshopped as possible. I tried paint brush and adding texture back, but it doesn't look great. Any help would be great

    the 2nd photo was one that i cleaned up, it doesn't look great, and I honestly don't even remember how I did it, it was like 3 am and I was doing anything I could

    Also the photos were shot with multiple lights with colored gel on them, which is also a b**ch to edit, sometimes.

    Thanks

    there's a Lee Varis tutorial here:
    Called Retouching Shiny Skin
    http://petapixel.com/2013/10/13/phot...ng-shiny-skin/
    it's also on youtube under Lee Varis's name.
    It gets quite involved as it teaches the Frequency Separation methods.
    it does get rid of shiny skin

      I tried frequency separation first but the highlight area was so large and Blown out that it didn't work for me
      but thanks for the video, I'll take a look and see his process. it's probably different from mine and could help
