Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of Aperture: Portrait Retouching.
We've come a long ways together in a short time here.…And, practiced a lot of techniques that I…think are very practical when working with portraits.…Something as simple as cropping and how it can change an image.…I think this shot is a great example.…I'm going to hold down the m key here. Here's where we started.…And cropping I think, changed this image tremendously.…Things like…showing restraint while you're brightening teeth or maybe smoothing skin a bit.…
How you can take the work that you do on one image and apply it to many.…And I like, also just keeping track of versions, so that…you can monitor your progress as you work on a shot.…And if you overstep your boundaries, no problem…at all, you can always back off and…be a little more subtle, reverse some of the adjustments that you made.…But in the end what we really want to do is, help our subjects…feel good about the photos and create beautiful artwork.…
So, I'm now going to place all of that in your hands.…I know you have photos in your Aperture…library that you can use these techniques on.…
