An overview of all the concepts we go through in this course and the key differences between male and female retouching.
In this lesson I show you my starting workflow of male portrait retouching which begins with all my initial toning and adjustments in Lightroom.
We are going to take the image into Photoshop and I show you how I deal with blemishes on male skin, clean up eyebrows and toning down stubble.
One of my primary retouching weapons of choice is frequency separation and in this lesson I’ll show you how to use it on male skin.
I teach you to train your eyes to see the most important part of the image visually and then how to eliminate distractions to focus the viewer on the model’s face.
The eyes are arguably the most important part of the image and where a viewer truly connects with the person and here I’ll show you how to make them command the shot.
