Skin Retouching and adding Fashion Effects

August 23, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

One of the reasons I recently hired a professional model for was to have some images I could use to improve my portrait retouching skills on. This was not such as bright idea as it happened because the idea of retouching is to remove skin imperfections etc. and my lovely model Coco was not exactly abundant in such flaws! Anyway, casting Portrait Professional and On One Perfect Portrait aside I have delved into the world of a technique called frequency separation. So entirely by hand I have gone from the image on the left to the one on the right. 

I also wanted to start playing around with effects to give pictures a more 'fashion' feel to them so I then ended up here ...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What do you think? I'll update this later to explain how I achieved the effects.
