Learn how to improve the color and contrast of a model's face, correct posture, smooth skin, and soften strong features, with tips from a professional retoucher.
- [Voiceover] Hello and welcome to Retouching Faces. The face has so many elements to it to take into consideration when you begin to refine it. My goal here is to get you to see before you act, in order to retouch the image in a natural way that strengthens the composition. We will be using the Liquefy Filter to help correct posture and bring out characteristics. Then we'll use a combination of the Patch Tool, Clone Stamp and Dodge and Burn to further reveal the beauty of the portrait. We will learn in this course how subtractive retouching adds to it's enhancement.
As we move through the course I wills share more insights pertaining to the challenges at hand. So get yourself comfortable, turn off your phone, and prepare yourself for a few hours of focus. Let's take a look now at our first image.
