Retouching portraits

Creating a beautiful portrait photograph starts with capturing a great image, however, even with the perfect combination of subject, pose, lighting and emotion. People are not perfect, so often in post production there is a certain amount of retouching work required. How much depends on your subject and the nature of the portraits, but doing it efficiently depends on a good workflow.

With retouching people, it is very easy to retouch too much and create a result which looks unrealistic. It is also very easy to spend too much time retouching your images. This workshop takes you through a workflow from starting image through to finished portrait.  Along the way there will be lots of useful hints to help you develop a workflow that works well for you and your portraits.
