Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating visual symmetry, part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Essentials.
In this movie we are going to be working on creating symmetry in a face.…I'm going to be using some of the similar techniques that we have already used,…we are going to apply those techniques to a new image.…Sometimes I find that this helpful so that we can see how this technique applies in different situations.…It can really help us learn how things work.…let's go ahead and open up the file Symmetry 2.…Now, I start it off by showing you the image as it is finished.…Now, there is a bunch of things that have happened here, skin, color and tone.…I wanted to start off with a reference folder, you know in the reference folder a lot of times I show, we have finished files,…we have something to refer to; and I've done that, so that we can say,…when I saw that image I wasnt really thinking about symmetry.…
I was thinking, OK, interesting image or perhaps you didnt like the image,…it doesnt really matter, but you werent thinking Symmetry.…So how then can we create that?…Now apart from the skin and working with the shadows into the eyes,…
