p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · C&C on editing please - Senior Portrait.


Just did a senior portrait for a friend of mine, actually a former camper from my Camp Counselor days. This was his favorite shot from the day. I had to touch up his skin, and it's not something I do a lot of, being in the journalism field where such things are frowned upon. C&C is welcome and wanted. I healed up the pimples, and then airbrushed in photoshop using sampled skin tones on the rest of his face.

I think you did a great job. It still looks quite natural without the porcelain skin look.

hi,

You did a good job. It does look natural (not plastic).

I would do some burning in the background or a slight vignette to help him stand out more...nice job on the re-touch

Thanks All!

Michael - Thanks for pointing that out. I already sent the photo to the parent to meet the deadline for the yearbook. I knew something was bugging me about the photo.

Good work.
Nice job on the touch ups.

Things that will help him stand out even more:

- choose a background that contrasts in colour to his face.
- compose to not have those bright spots right behind him, up by his hair.
- reduce the fill lighting to get more shading. As seen, there is almost no difference in light on one side of his face to the other. Looks like two main lights.

Thank you Jim, I appreciate the time to C&C. I hadn't really thought in terms of color for the brick versus facial tones, interesting. I did actually all of your suggestions in 9/10ths of my other shots - Had a variety of backgrounds and different types of lighting, but this was Ben's choice for the yearbook. I was a bit worried that the background in this shot would be a distraction, but he ended up liking this one the best. If I had reduced the fill lighting to get more shading, most of his face would have been in shade. The strong side light is the sun.

The client ended up needing a CD made up instead of me emailing them the file (they're not computer savvy). So I took the chance to edit the background and make him pop more. What a nice subtle difference!
