Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Lightening and darkening specific areas, part of Portrait Retouching with Aperture.
I have a fun technique to show you right now.…We're going to lighten the area underneath Michelle's eyes just a…bit, very subtly but I love the way that we do it.…So, I'm going to go ahead and duplicate this version right here.…Create edit two, so that we know that, that's the technique for…lightening up under the eyes. Edit two, hit Tab, there…we go, now let's bring this up right here and we'll…go to our Adjustments. So, just a little bit right here.…
Now, we've improved this a lot just through our other edits.…Let me hit the M key to show you the,…where we started, see how it was darker.…But when we worked on the skin and did all those other nice…things then a nice byproduct of that was just lightening up that area.…So this shouldn't be too hard to finish up.…Now again, some folks are thinking Dodge tool right here but the Dodge tool…in my mind in Aperture is way too clumsy. And we want to do something…more subtle so what I'm going to do is I'm going to zoom in, my mouse right there.…
I'll just position this a bit.…
