Nino Batista is a model photographer in the United States. His work is regularly seen in lifestyle and men's publications the world over, including many international editions of Playboy, FHM, and more.
Here Nino walks you through various shooting scenarios he uses to create his work and how those environments need a different focus when retouching skin.
RAW preparation is completely different when it comes to black and white. We start the edit by enabling the black and white filter in Capture One. Nino focuses on creating a high contrast image here, knowing that there will be contrast brought down during his Photoshop process.
The gradient map comes in this time to add contrast. Compressing the image with the included action balances the heavy gradient demonstrating again how layers interact with each other to find the perfect balance.
