Wk 6 - DT 1 Portrait Retouching

This week we looked at portrait retouching.  We followed a tutorial on Lynda.com.
f/5.6, 1/60, ISO 100

Above is the photo which we used to retouch following the Lynda.com tutorial.  Below are the changes that were made to the photo.  Some of the tools which we used were masking.  Creating a mask ensures that the original photo does not become compromised.  Changes are made on the masks which can be reversed.  We made changes to the lighting using curves.  Another tool which i have been using a lot is the spot healing, and healing tool.  This smooths out or removes blemishes to the skin.

f/8, 1/200, ISO 100
This is a photo i took in week 7, in this photo you can see my subject has some blemishes on her face.  The tools i used to make changes to this photo is placing a black and white mask on to the photo as well as using the spot healing tool to remove blemishes.
By converting the photo to black and white and removing the blemishes my subjects skin looks flawless
