Here are a few shots of my fiance in the "studio." I use the term studio loosely as it's just a mobile setup that I do in our basement sometimes, which will have to do until we buy a house.

I feel like I'm quite the lucky guy :-D

Lucky guy, indeed!
1 and 3 are my faves, for the eyes and atmosphere. Lighting is great in all.

She looks good in most of these. But in #2, the skin texture under her eyes looks too rough for me.

i agree...i don't know what it is but i cannot seem to smooth it out. i've done about as much as i can in LR without it looking unnatural (just replaced it with a new edit). there's probably a better way in PS but i don't know it. i can clone things and that's about it :lol:

I really like the black & white one; #3.

I don't mind the skin in #2. For me, I would rather see that than something which has been made to look almost unnaturally smooth...


Just shut up and smile...

Cloning rough skin over rough skin = ? ; )
I don't know LR, but when you're done with your corrections, do not sharpen that area of skin.

There's no reason that you need to go all the way with the smoothing?

Oh I don't use cloning to fix rough skin, I was just saying in general that's really all I use PS for. Don't worry :-)

So since you have PS..
Duplicate the layer.
On the duplicate, add a small amount of Filter > Blur / Gaussian Blur.
Add a Layer mask > Hide All
Paint on the Layer mask to reveal some of the blur onto the background layer.

If you heven't used Layer Masks before: Photoshop CS6 Tutorial - Understanding Layer Masks (external link)

Three pages on Layer Masks (external link)

Excellent! Thank you! That makes it easier. I have some knowledge of layer masks but it's been a while since I used them extensively. So I will visit those links! Nice to know specifically how to use it to smooth out skin though. Thanks again!
