Digital Retouching Beauty
DIGITAL RETOUCHING FOR FASHION, BEAUTY AND PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY
Finally – here’s a beauty retouching book aimed at photo professionals. It’s for those who either focus entirely on the retouching aspect, or photographers who do their own post-production. This inspiring e-book meets the needs of photographers, assistants, digital operators, retouchers, and anyone who produces high-quality people-shots that need to stand up to close scrutiny and large output sizes. It’s sharp, clean and well designed, letting the images and tutorials do the talking. The digital pdf format is the perfect medium because you can zoom in and examine the images in detail. The majority of images in the book have been published as fashion editorials, high-end magazine covers, advertising campaigns and CD-covers.
It's all about transforming good images into stunning images. You’ll find no recipes for transforming your granny into a supermodel. Speaking of recipes – the book can be read and used almost like a cookbook, with a mix of in-depth retouching concepts and step-by-step tutorials. The tutorials are advanced, but as straightforward as possible, with a string of logic going through them. The book’s 85 tutorials consist of well-proven techniques and the ‘recipes’ have been tested on various photographers and retouchers. Based on Gry’s experience as a Photoshop trainer, the tutorials are suitable for all levels. There’s enough detail for inexperienced users, and at the same time a fast-track way of skimming the text for advanced users. The general emphasis is on making light work of the retouching, by working in a smart and bold way, while still keeping it subtle, realistic and editable!
