High-End Photoshop Retouching Video Tutorial

By fotosiamo on May 28th 2012

The majority of us probably do some sort of retouching to our work. Some of us, like myself, do a lot more because we do beauty/fashion retouching, or compositing. While I have use frequency separation (cloning, color correction, light sculpting w/ dodge & burn), Portraiture, and a bit of liquifying, I rarely go to the extent of master retoucher Gry Garness who uses warp and puppet-warp to transform to stretch torso, reshape legs, and lift upper body, as well as some Content-Aware Fill magic is used to rebuild the background. I’ve learned some really cool technique from her, as well as gain some respect on the attention to detail from a high-end professional retoucher.

Take a look and enjoy!

    Really natural photos especially of young girls. Skins smoothening is on high level! Your techniques look like!

    There are a few techniques here that you really have to watch. Puppet warp and warp in general does tend to make the area “unsharp” in comparison to what is around it. in high end retouching you have to be really careful of stretched and softened textures.

    I saw her DVD with a retoucher I know. She’s awfully good!

    Not sure about “high end” (taken in a public bathroom) nor her taste in retouching, but I did pick up some new tricks. Thanks.
