Portrait Retouching

New Portrait Retouching Section

I have added a new section on portrait retouching for those interested in retouching. I use high frequency retouching which is a professional retouching technique. This technique lets me retouch but retain the detail in the subject. This helps get rid of the that fake air-brushed look. Retouching is always up to the individual. How much is up to the client. My retouching is done in layers so it is easy to turn something off, lower the amount or change. This page includes a YouTube video in which I walk you through the process. It should give you a better understanding of what can be done and how easy it is to make alterations. Retouching is free and included with every portrait.

This example is a little more extreme. I was after the fashion magazine look in this example. It was part of a YouTube retouching video I made.

Horse Blackout Portrait

Post Processing

Post-processing is always overlooked in photography. Even with presets or actions you still have to understand when, where and how to apply them. A good photographer can really enhance an image in post-processing. The photography aspect is much less time consuming than processing image.

These blackout portraits are very popular in the horse world. They are actually pretty easy to do. The hardest part is to get the horse in the correct place and looking decent. Otherwise, nothing fancy was done. This little series was done in 30 seconds. What makes them dramatic is how they are shot and post-processing clean-up. Here are the before and after of this image.

Expert Retouching

Stop using those phone apps to retouch your selfies.  I can use high-frequency retouching in Adobe Photoshop to retouch your portraits.  High-frequency retouching separates the color layer from the detail layer in Photoshop.  This allow me to to fix blemishes, skin color and shadows without removing detail.  This will give you a more natural look than just blurring your face.  I can contour you face, shape your eyes, nose, mouth, head and body.  Need thicker eyelashes, no problem I can add them too.  Retouching is totally free and painless for all portraits I take.

If you would like to see the process, I have a YouTube tutorial I made for this image.  The description has time stamps so you can skip to any part of the video you would like to watch.

This is a more extreme version of retouching and face shaping.  I added digital makeup to to this subject.  You can see how I changed her face shape with makeup and shadows.  I can do anything from mild to extreme retouching.

I added digital makeup in this retouching example.

 

 

Feel free to contact John Whitehead Images to schedule a spring portrait.  Retouching is totally free for all portraits I take.
