In this course, photographer, author, and teacher Chris Orwig details the tools every photographer needs to retouch portraits to make them look their best while remaining authentic. The course includes an overview of the retouching process and how to develop a plan for a retouching project.
After exploring techniques to improve the overall photo, Chris shares his techniques for reducing wrinkles, enhancing eyes and other facial features, improving hair, and retouching makeup. The course concludes with a look at retouching skin and reshaping portions of a portrait using transformations, the Warp tool, and the Liquify filter.
Here I want to share with you a few resources that will help you get even better at working with makeup in Photoshop. If you navigate to the site that I've shared previously, which is chrisowrig.com/retouching, you can click on those section for books. One of the books here that I highlight is Making Faces, and if you click on that link, it will take you to Amazon, and here you can learn more about this book. I just want to highlight one thing here, is that it will show you how you can apply and add makeup. By learning how this works in real life, it can then help your Photoshop work as well.
Another resource that might be helpful for working with makeup is triciasawyer.com. Tricia Sawyer is an amazing makeup artist, and in here what you can do is, if you click on the About section, you can view the different cover sheets, or movies that she's worked on. And also, if you do a search for her name on you YouTube, you can find these free movies that you can watch, which will show you how to work with makeup. And again, by learning a little bit more about makeup, it can help your overall work in Photoshop. So I hope that these few resources might help you dig deeper into this topic.
