This is the second tutorial in a series on photographic retouching. The first part was all about evening skin tonal values and removing blemishes. In this part I will take you through everything else. So, as a result it's a long video (40 Mins).
Originally written for www.whiteinkblog.com .In this tutorial I will complete a professional photographic retouching from start to finish. Before watching please note that there is a lot of information in this video to absorb, so watch and re-watch areas that you find more advanced. This is a 40 minute video, I'd recommend pausing it at regular intervals before continuing so that you fully understand all the processes. Some of the areas covered in this video are:
If you do not have time right now to watch the 40 minute tutorial, I'd suggest you watch this video, it goes through what we will be doing in a summarised version as I am aware the lenght of the video is quite long.– Colour Correction – Reshaping Features (Figure, Eyes, Lips, Cheeks, etc) – Adjusting tonal values – Grading the image – Simulating a Realistic Depth of Field Simulation – Selective Enhancement of areas There are a lot of sub-techniques and sub-processes that go into each of the above, so if you've got a question leave a comment and I'll do my best to answer.
Ok, I have included two versions here, both are the same video except the second one is higher res, suitable for fullscreen.
