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 web sites and resources that will help you get even better at portrait retouching. The first site I want to highlight is one of my own. It's chrisorwig.com/retouching. Here in this small little microsite you'll find there some navigational links on the left. If you click on the link say for retouching books, you will discover a number of different books that I recommend if you want to get better at retouching. You also may find the retouching the links section helpful.
Here there are a number of different links, which will take you to different sites, which will show you all wide range of different types of retouching. Just to highlight one, for example, Amy Dresser. I have this one open in a new tab. Here you can see one of the images that she worked on. Roll over the photograph and you can see the before and then roll off, and you can see the after. Many of these sites will show you these before and after views. And often by looking at other peoples' work, it can help you improve your own.
Last but not least, I want to highlight my own blog, you can find that at http://chrisorwig.com/flipside. And if you click on the link for subscribe, you can click to subscribe to a newsletter that I put out about three or four times a year. In that newsletter I include information about photography, about retouching, and Lightroom and Photoshop. So if you want to keep in touch or if you just want to keep on top of all of these things, you may find that helpful. You can also of course navigate to the home section of the blog.
And here at the home section you'll find that I post announcements about things that I've released. I also post recent photographs that I have captured. All right. Well, I hope that a few of these sites and resources will help you as you seek to become better at portrait retouching.
