  • Analyzing the Image

    Continue analyzing a portrait image of a man, looking at pores, stubble, facial structure breaking down specific elements to retain and distractions to eliminate based upon industry and client expectations versus personal taste.

  • RAW Processing

    Using Capture One, follow retoucher, Patrik Naik, as he processes a RAW image capture to be retouched in Photoshop. With this example, prepare an image of a male subject, with ideal dynamic range, exposure and neutral white balance, retaining resolution and bit depth for the retouching process.

  • Initial Clean Up

    Begin the retouching process with skin cleanup across the male subject's skin texture. Work quickly and efficiently using the healing brush and clone stamp tools for a textured, natural skin tone.
