Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Enhancing faces with shadows and highlights, part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Essentials.
In the previous movies, we have learnt some really valuable tips that have helped us enhance shape in regards to the body.…Well, what about the face?…How do we add Contour to the face in order to add visual interest?…Well, that's what we are going to learn how to do in this particular movie.…We are going to be working on the file face_contour.psd.…So, go and open that one up inside a Photoshop and press F to go to Full Screen View mode.…Now, here we have this portrait that we have seen before, there is the original file, this is the image as shot,…then I've done some retouching, I've cleaned it up, I've added some symmetry, worked on color and tone etcetera, etcetera.…
Now, at this stage of the retouching, we are ready to add some Contour.…Whats that going to look like?…I've included a layer with this file, I'm going to turn on this layer,…it is going to look a little funny, but stick with me for a second.…So I will turn on this layer.…Wow! That actually looks a little bit scary, doesnt it?…Well, how about if we take this to a Blend Mode of Soft Light and see what it is actually intended to do.…
