My ideas for Photoshop

1. Add a color overlay view option for Blend if.

2. Add a preset for a Saturation mask in Selective color.

3. Match color – make it work non-destructively.

4. Color grading panel from ACR as an Adjustment layer.

5. Rename Blending to Feathering in Color Grading.

Test shoot retouch collaboration
Feb 20, 2020 / Tags:

Hello, world! Recently I’ve collaborated with a talented London-based photographer Agata Preyss.

11-2

10-2

The most challenging was the second image, because I had to reshape the face (partially). The area between the eye, eyebrow and the hair looked too flat – check the before/after.

I solved the problem by adding the shadows and highlights with the dodge&burn technique.

This must be done properly in terms of anatomy, not just random painting. So, I had to google a number of skulls, art sketches, anatomy and drawing manuals. I’m absolutely happy with the final result and the new collaboration!
