Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Sharpening and brightening the eyes, part of Aperture: Portrait Retouching.
I really like the way this portrait is coming…along, it's changed a lot from its original version.…And in fact I'm going to use it for brightening and sharpening the eyes a bit.…I think because it's so tightly focused this will be a good example.…So I've created another version for this exercise and it will be Edit three.…For brightening and sharpening the eyes.…And let's…go ahead and take a closer look at it here.…So, I did a little bit more cleanup.…
We had a hair here that I eliminated. And I smoothed out the skin a bit.…And, of course, we brightened this tooth a bit in the previous movie.…So now we're in good shape to work on…the eyes, and that's exactly what I want to do.…And there are two things that I want to accomplish here.…One is, I want to brighten…them up a bit. and maybe just sharpen them a bit.…So for the brightening, we're going to use highlights and shadows.…Again, because of the subtle nature of this…control, I think it's perfect for this task.…
So I'm going to go over here to the Gear menu,…
