Join Timothy Sexton for an in-depth discussion in this video Structuring adjustment layers, part of Photoshop Retouching Techniques: Skin.
In setting the look for your images, 90% or more of the look should…be set using overall global moves, like…right here with the curves and this hue/sat.…Just turn those on and off and you can…see how the entire image is affected by those moves.…The next 10% or less can be set with the use of masks - tight exact…masks to isolate areas to change colors or loose masks to draw detail out of shadow.…Zooming in a bit, and looking at this model's skin, you can…see that the color is kind of moving around all over the place.…
We have concentrated areas of magenta, and we have these concentrated areas of cyan.…That's due to the lighting on the shoot and…also because the skin absorbs so much color around it.…Under my adjustment curves, I have a foreground layer set.…That foreground layer set contains a master…silhouette of the model separated from the background.…In opening that up, I have sub-masks, a non-skin and a skin.…Both of these layer sets isolate the skin, and this one isolates the non-skin.…
And inside the non-skin we have all of the elements…
