Re-touching the Model

Postby biggerry on Sat Oct 30, 2010 1:00 pm

This is an interesting webbie page, thie rolloevers are great for seeing exactly what has been PP'd. What I wanna know is, how do you do the face paint, like on the second image?! almost seamless...

"Who sees the human face correctly: the photographer, the mirror, or the painter?"

In these selected images, you can witness first hand the impact that retouching has the potential to make on a single image.

Gerry,

It's not that technical but tedious. This is meticulous paintwork at high magnification with cloning of very small areas. Then blended with a few modes etc.

Also desat + contrast increase.

More than 4 steps and 5 minutes. :wink:

I guess this is not quite 'touch' but more of a solid grope. :mrgreen:

I love how he says it's about sculpting light, and then proceeds to remove blemishes, tattoos etc... not sure any amount of sculpted light could achieve that outcome.
