I like it, you did soften skin, remove spots, increased contrast, what else?
The eyes came out pretty well. Thanks for the effort.


Some simple photos

One way I usually do it in LR, is the adjustment brush. Select the eyes, boost highlights a bit, a little exposure and a little shadows. Really brings out natural catch lights if it's there

How do you "select the eyes" in LR? I have found the brush itself to be somewhat of a hit or miss. Works fine for me for larger areas that need dodging or burning, or skin softening. Haven't really had much success with eyes though.


Sony A7RII and a bunch of lenses.

I fixed some flyaway hairs too. even out the skin tone.

the eyes.
i duplicated the layer. increase saturation, darken shadows, changed color a bit using color balance, sharpened then i masked it. brightened the whole eye socket a bit using the dodging tool in photoshop.

cleaned the skin using frequency separation.
here's my step.
1. change it to 16bit - go to mode>16bit
2. duplicate layers twice.
3. Name the middle layer as color
4. name the top layer as texture
5. hide first the texture layer and go to the color layer
6. when in layer color, do gausian blur at around 12 or enough to smoothen the skin
7. activate the texture layer and go to image> apply image
in the layer dropdown, select the color layer
blending>subtract, scale 2, offset 128 hit ok
8. while in the texture layer, create new adjustment layer>curves and do this.

then in layers blending mode, change to linear light.

9. go to the texture layer and start cloning. zoom on to the area you want to fix and use the clone tool.

10. after cloning all the blemishes or hair or whatever.
hide the curves layer and turn the blending mode of the texture layer to
linear light.

note: use a soft brush for your clone tool and make it sligthly bigger than the blemishes you want to get rid.

when you're satisfied, save a flat version and convert it back to 8bit otherwise you can't save a file other than .psd.

for sharpening, i'm using smart sharpen. amount depends on the size of your image.

the best is duplicate a layer and do the smart sharpen. if it's too sharp for your taste, just lower the opacity.

to whiten the teeth. duplicate a layer. tone down the saturation. lighten using curves. mask, invert the mask(command or control I) grab your brush(color white) brush unto the teeth. make the brush edge a little harder. maybe 20%.

hope it helps. hope it's not that complicated the way i wrote it.

for dodging and burning:

dodging and burning helps contour the face, arms legs of your model. it makes your lighting not flat.

the best tutorial i found online and what i am using is this.

the technique is really good, but the result in the video is very extreme

that's how natural beauties in real life finally end up looking like plastic dolls in magazines
