How to Properly Work with Color
Retouching 301 begins with a discussion on color. What is proper skin tone and how can you make sure your images aren’t too red or too green? We teach you how to use the included Skin Tone Chart to analyze and correct skin tone. Learn workflow tips and tricks to achieve better color in your portraits!
Included Skin Tone Chart & Color Swatches
Skin tone can be tough to perfect, a little too much red or green and skin starts to look weird. The included Skin Tone Chart & Swatches provide you with a quick-reference guide on proper skin tone. Compare highlights, mid-tones, and shadows to achieve proper color.
Children don’t tend to have many of the skin blemishes that adults do—acne and wrinkles haven’t had time to leave their mark. When retouching children, it is mostly about correcting light and color. We show you how to use Lightroom and Photoshop to add style and focus to children’s portraits.
Portraits can be retouched in several ways. You can focus on realism, or you can go for style. The easiest and most effective way to add style to a portrait is through color-tone. We show you how to add color to highlights, mid-tones, and shadows separately for more impact. Learn how to use Gradient Maps to color-tone and how to load color-toning presets.
