Portrait challenge 1

I've opened up this first image into Adobe Camera Raw. You can make similar adjustments using Lightroom. Now looking at this image, it looks pretty fantastic to start. There's only a small handful of things I want to deal with. Let's start by zooming in to 100% and just check some of the critical focus. The image looks good. In fact the pores read pretty well, but I just see a few blemishes that we'll touch up. Looking at the hair there it's good, but I'd like a little more separation from the backdrop. Let's go ahead and zoom back out and make some of our initial default adjustments. As I play with Exposure, you see the image moving over in the histogram to the right.

I don't want to overexpose this image too much. But I am going to lift it up just a little bit. Similarly, I can independently adjust the Highlights. I'll pull those back down to maintain the skin tones while lifting up the overall base exposure. As I toggle that off and on, you see it's much easier...
