Join Timothy Sexton for an in-depth discussion in this video Identifying what to remove, part of Photoshop Retouching: Skin.
Retouching with the objective of keeping a natural feel with…imperfections left in, is often more difficult than beauty retouching.…You have to be even more sensitive and thoughtful in your application of moves.…Keeping all that in mind can lead to indecision, which slows down the process.…A quick analysis, followed by the method of breaking down the steps,…will help you to produce less retouched images in a good time.…Looking at this portrait, you can see a…lot of pre-touching was done on set.…The makeup and the dramatic lighting have left the skin somewhat glistening.…
The moisture of the skin picks up light, giving it a crunchy feel.…That's something we need to correct.…Keeping an image natural doesn't mean barely retouching it.…It just means to concentrate more on the distracting…elements overall that take focus away from the model.…We want to tone down textures and blemishes, not fully take them away.…And leave in aspects that lend itself to looking un-retouched.…
