Photo Editing & Skin Retouch

7 hours + lunch break, 5 – 7 persons

The same way as natural make-up is key in nowaday’s people and fashion photography, only a natural retouch sustains and completes it. But maintaining this natural look is more difficult than over-doing it. Editing images is about decisions. I will teach you three methods and how to combine them in order to get the most natural yet clean skin result. Additionally, we’re taking care of the whole process before and after skin editing. The colour management is your signature and it transforms a snap into a professional image. We’re also looking at how to correct imperfections of the shape, the clothing, and the background. As a finish we’ll have a look at all the grey layers that help us to dodge & burn, add grain or sharpen images.

Which topics we’re covering:

• Capture One resp. Adobe Lightroom (colour management, selection, data handling)
• Adobe Photoshop (liquifying, colour correction, 3 different methods of skin retouch combined, dodge & burn, sharpening, grain)
• Working on your own photography with my assistance
• Your individual questions
