I don't see any significant difference between the two pictures.

Here is one that took a bit of work:

Is there something wrong about asking people to share their "before and after" images? :rolleyes:

The woman on the photo wanted me to do a "nose" job on the image with which to take to her cosmetic surgeon for the real nose job....

I was in a playful mood so I intentionally made it hard to find (so the parenthesis). Here's the closer comparisons:

The good thing is that the editing you did is very hard to notice....unless you know where to look. I can see the difference now that you mentioned it. Most people do a significant amount of work on the entire picture that makes a dramatic difference to the picture as a whole.......therefore the comments posted.


Canon 5D mk iii, Canon 5d classic, Rebel XTI 400D 18-55 kit lens, Canon EF 85mm 1:1.8, Canon EF 17-40 F4L, Quantaray 70-300 1:4-5.6 LD, Canon 70-200 F2.8 iiL, Canon EF135 F2 L, Canon 200 F2 L, Tamron 28-75 1:2.8 , 2 alien bee 800's, 430 EXii, 580 EXii, rectangular and octo softboxes, assorted umbrellas, portable backdrops, radio triggers and still adding.............

Jase and Benji -

Very nice photoshopped samples! Would you guys mind sharing a brief summary of what you did to achieve the end results?

In Ps I used the "Band aid" tool and retouched her zits. Then I made a copy of the image and retouched the bags under her eyes and lowered the opacity to 50% and flattened it. Then I removed the fill light catchlights and rounded off the main light catchlights in her eyes with the Pain Brush tool at about 35% on both opacity and hardness. I then sharpened only her face with Smart Sharpen, and ran the image through Imagenomic Portraiture on the normal setting. I then erased the softening in her hair, lips, teeth, eyes and clothing and flattened the image. Lastly I removed the fly away hair with the Clone tool. I then saved the file to my "Retouched" file, so if she doesn't like what I have done I still have an unretouched version to start all over again with. :lol: (That has never happened.)

I horribly blew out the sky when I snapped the picture of the little boy. Here is roughly the steps I used to correct it. (Thankful I shoot RAW as it allows me to fix my silly mistakes)

I adjusted the white balance to taste in Lightroom or ACR
exported to Photoshop
I used a layer mask over the boy and reduced the exposure around the boy by about 3 to 4 stops. This brought some of the color back into the sky.
I used the spot healing brush to remove some skin blemishes
Portraiture for the final skin tone and smoothing.

I'll play and can show some portraits later but this is one of Jeff Hill's 500awhp show and go STI. The Subaru symbol was just a joke between him and I as he said I should be shooting for Subaru and i told him it's the subject that makes my photos stand out haha.

This was actually out of LR with bump in blacks and a minor adjustment for WB and exposure and recovery.
