Join Lee Varis for an in-depth discussion in this video Lesson 15: Rebuilding skin pt. 3, part of Beyond Skin: Going Deeper with Photoshop CS3.
Okay we've blurred the skin and now added this sort of fake texture and by now…you're probably saying to yourself, but Lee, this doesn't look good at all. And…that's because we're not done.…We have a couple of more steps to go through and we'll get to that right now.…All right, so here we are and we have this sort of sandpaper like texture over…the skin. It's a little heavy, one of the advantages of keeping this texture…stuff in a separate layer of course is that we can dial back the opacity which…will help a little bit here.…
The other thing is we can also dial back the opacity of the whole blur and…blend it back in with the original skin texture, so I'm going to do that right now.…And you can bring back as much or as little of that as you want.…I'm now down to about 64% and let's just toggle back to the original picture,…kind of see how far we've come.…So by changing the opacity and blending it back in with the real skin texture,…we create a much more convincing effect than if we applied it at a 100%.…
Portraiture can be one of the most rewarding skills for a photographer to master, and the right post-processing and enhancement techniques can make all the difference.
