So, earlier this year I promised myself I’d start photographing more people and I’ve held up pretty well on the promise.
This is from a quick, fifteen minute, session from yesterday.
Single softbox, directly over the camera. Additionally I put a flash directly behind my niece to get a bit of gradient light.
Had some hot spots on the forehead, nose and cheeks. I used a technique that I’ve never used before, it invoked the eye dropper tool and a solid color layer, inverting the mask and then painting in color on the spots. It worked well!
Also used a new technique to eliminate a bunch of stray hairs which did the trick.
I also used OnOne’s Perfect Photo Portrait to refine the skin. Didn’t use much as she has beautiful skin.
