Well, there are what some refer to as three stages of sharpening.

Input sharpening to compensate for softnesses created by the camera conversion.

Than there is the creative sharpening or sharpening for effect. Usually selectively.

And finally there is the output sharpening. Depending where you output your image, print or web that may very off course.

Also there is a matter of how the source image looks like to begin with. Output is always relative to the input.

It should be pretty straight forward and there are books that I linked you to about it that go in depth and if that is not enough you can also check out these two titles from Deke.

Photoshop CS3 Sharpening Images with Deke McClelland
http://www.lynda.com/Photoshop-CS3-tuto … 543-2.html

Photoshop CS4: Sharpening Images New Features with Deke McClelland
http://www.lynda.com/Photoshop-CS4-tuto … 001-2.html

That is very indepth. I will touch on it at some point, but with all those titles on the market I don't see the need to devote hours to it. I think that time could be spend showing areas of Photoshop and image editing that have not been covered in depth yet.

I would like for you to put in a sample image that you personally found to be one of your hardest edits, complete with your own remarks/comments layer on how you would solve the nightmare on your screen.

How about an  autobiography portfilio on your way to becoming a retoucher with real examples of your struggle. That could help some individuals on their struggles by being able to relate with their own editing work levels.

I will work on images that are for the magazine and there will be challenges as well as me explaining the thinking process. There will be revisions from the client so who knows what kind of challenges await. I will try to make it as real world experience as I can.

IMHO - good complimenting set to first dvd:

Color wheel (even simplified) + correction of skin tones.
Basics of hair retouching.

Also it would be quite interesting to see your D&B flow on african model smile

I'd like to see what goes into the kind of coloration that Pascal Dangin does for Annie L or someone similar.

In other words, custom colorization or maybe stylized colorization. (?)

not really..  But i might be wrong, it might be at the section where i was loosing will to live.. While i love Natalia's work and i watched whole thing - she did this in monotonous tone (she says that Vitaly asked her to do it like that, so its not her fault, actually), there are sections of her material that i had to just put matches in my eyes to not fall asleep, despite how good material is.

Plus its always interesting to see different approaches from different people. I picked up things from both of your workflows wink Would be kinda interesting to see that.

yup.. Shot girls last Saturday.. I rarely shoot anyone but caucasians (no racial thing there, it just that most of african americans do tend to shoot with photographers from same group, oddly - it doesnt work same way for caucasians). And part  of it was to do some headshots for makeup artists.. While i have no problem with body shots, as soon as it gets to pure faces it just baffles me. I guess i didnt get yet to portion of your first DVD ( i am rationing this through past month and half) where you been dealing with that example. 

So while i am retouching it - it just strikes me as different set of mind, b/c you have to light it differently and thus i have gut feeling that retouching is not exactly same (shaping for one is done with highlights vs shadows), dunno.. i am slowly fighting through set.

So this time I plan to work on a cyclist, athlete kind of images. There are 13 raw files and the client pick four for the Magazine. One for Cover and rest in the spread. So I will be working on that. Different techniques and there will be revisions from the client I'm sure. Things like replace the sky, make the stadium longer, change the color of the shirt, remove the logo on the floor, rebuild the logo on the bike etc.

Including color correction techniques and compositing.

Well this DVD is more like three in one. But I plant to make a few bonus videos for YouTube.

The principle is exactly the same as working on a Caucasian models.

I took this suggestion to hearth and I just recorded two videos one is 40 min and the other is like 30 min where I took a trip down the Memory Lane of some first images I did and I reverse engineering them layer by layer explaining what was my thinking process back than. And I managed to incorporate that into the whole Bit Depth scheme. So thank you for the suggestion, it was a fun trip back to old times. Haven't looked at those images in two, two and a half years. It was fun for me as well to see my old school retouching. lol

Hi there! I am a fan smile

I would be very much interested in studio fashion photography techniques and processing- but whole body shots and the style fashion magazines use. As in this pic.

http://blog.souslesetoiles.net/?p=82

Also techniques so as to capture moving poses as the one above.

I have already wrote about this request and I can't do it in this one, maybe in the next one. smile

As for the techniques so as to capture moving poses as the one above - I'm not a photographer so I can't offer you any help with that. Get in touch with photographers who shoot fashion or try asking in the photography section of this forum.

...I explained my thinking process behind "carving". As for how it works. It's pretty straight forward. You Dodge to lighten and you Burn to Darken. I guess people are looking for is how I think when I use the simple concept so that is what I talked about.

Perhaps I have not done enough research and this is off topic for the video piece, but it would be awesome to create a channel of sorts that allows for assignments (similar to your client's mark-up), and then get an evaluation over the course of say a 90 day period. You have always provided great feedback and insight-would be awesome for you Kruno! smile

Well, that's a big obligation. I'm not against it but at the moment I don't think I would have the time to manage everything, not alone at least. Maybe after the DVD is out than I will have more time and I'm sure something can be arranged. Maybe some webinars or Google Hangout or something.

One thing I'd like to see is how to get more done in less time.

My average time retouching a photo is about three hours. There are professional retouchers on MM who do what I do (and do it better) for $20-$25 per photo, and I doubt they spend three hours per photo doing it.

(Btw, my portfolio is way out of date. The first approach to Photoshop that I learned was heavy on the Gaussian blur. I'm working on a portfolio update - moving update candidates into a protected folder - but what's in my portfolio now is from my Gaussian Era.)

Thanks...

Maybe this gonna sound silly, but a list of general guidelines for every (or most) kind of work that a retoucher gonna find through his career.

Or, wait, I came across a better way than that and that could teach how to catch the fish tongue: guidelines to correctly define what clients need (even without them knowing that) depending of the photography you work with.

example:
step 1: defining who the hero/main subject is
step 2: defining whats the true intent of the picture
step 3: searching for problems with the expression of 1 and 2 in the picture(composition, etc)
step 4: getting an idea about the possible options you have to fix 3
step 5: choosing the right one
step 6: check related work on google for more guidelines
....
step N.
+ maybe some examples from different types of photography (fashion, beauty, sports, product, glamour, portraits, lifestyle, etc)

Something that will help new retouchers to have the right mindset from the beginning and not just give a lot of powerful tools and not the guidelines of when to use them (specially in the case when the guys havent assisted any art class in their lifes or never came across an artistic activity), this could shorten the learning curve and shorten the period of excessive experimentation and odd retouching resoults like one do when is starting to learn this stuff smile

I’ve hesitated for several months to list these things, because I don’t know how many others would be interested in them. Some of these are kinda oddball situations, but I’m gonna toss them out there anyway.

In a year and a half of using Photoshop, I feel I’ve become fairly competent (if not the fastest) in the “standard” techniques – the things I do with every photo. But sometimes I come across off-the-wall problems that I just don’t know how to solve.

They seem to come in clusters. Last September and the past few weeks were the peaks for these types of issues. Here are some examples.

- A model with a scab the diameter of a quarter on her right knee. (For those not in the US, that’s a little over 25mm.) The model had to be turned to her left, because that’s where the sunlight was bouncing off a third-floor window behind me. I finally got rid of it with the clone stamp on the fifth or sixth attempt – but maybe there’s a better way?

- Serious tanlines. I found 2-3 techniques in the forums and on the Internet, but they didn’t work for me in this case.

- Stretch marks. I found the stretch marks to be a series of alternating light and dark lines (highlights and shadows), mostly about 1-3 pixels wide. Dodging the dark lines and burning the light lines for about three hours made them much less prominent, but I haven’t been able to make them completely go away.

- Splotchy skin. (The client said it’s from delivering a baby a few months earlier.) Nothing I’ve tried has worked with this. Actually I’ve encountered this twice in the past year. More difficult than the stretch marks because it covers a larger area, and there’s no pattern to the changes in tonality.

- Local color castes. Reddish ones on a model’s arm and shoulder and, in other photos of other models, in various areas. A golden caste in the shadow under a model’s chin. A blue caste on a model wearing a shiny blue gown near a river. I’ve been able to reduce the castes, primarily by desaturating, but they’re still there. If I desaturate past a certain point, they begin to turn gray.

- Worst of all has been a filthy studio floor – a smooth and somewhat glossy surface (not sure what it is – about 12x20 feet, probably too large to be Plexiglass) laid down and cemented to a concrete floor at the base of a 12-foot cyc wall) and painted white.

The cyc wall was built (and the wall and floor painted) in February of last year. By June it was covered with scuff marks from high heels, props and furniture being moved around, etc. (There are 22 photographers who shoot regularly at this studio).

By June I was spending more time retouching the floor than the models. I would take out the darkest of the marks with the healing brush or clone stamp, then lay down a heavy Gaussian blur over the floor. That worked fine, except that I couldn’t use the blur in or near shadows, the model’s feet and legs, chair legs, etc.

In September I spent six hours retouching a small area of the floor in one photo and got it to a point where it was almost acceptable. But the techniques I was using (which included Gaussian blur) couldn’t be used in most areaz of the floor.

Yeah, I know, paint the floor. It’s a rental studio. It was finally painted, and now the issues are coming back.

gotta rebuild it if it's in profile, as i suspect.

Camerosity wrote:

hard to say if we don't know what you've tried.
masked curves layer or hsl, or this method:
http://www.modelmayhem.com/po.php?threa … st10653912

Camerosity wrote:
- Stretch marks.

frequency separation, then clone nice skin over the stretch marks on the high frequency layer. If they're deep and wide, also paint over them on the low frequency layer.

Camerosity wrote:
- Splotchy skin.

frequency separation,
then, for the big splotches, a bandstop (surface blur on a copy of the low frequency layer, masked out, then masked in over the splotches)
then, for small splotches, a degrunge (inverted high pass; copy the HF layer, blur, invert, mask out, then mask back in on the small splotches)

Camerosity wrote:
- Local color castes.

Amy dresser's webcast spends a lot of time on this. high-feathered lasso on the area, then a curves layer to minimize the color cast. She does dozens of curves layers on an image this way.

Camerosity wrote:

get permission from the studio manager to paint it more frequently? "hey, i'm gonna paint the scuff-floor. let me know how much time to block out"
or bring in some tileboard?

I would like to see skin retouching to fix 'peach fuzz'
and removing/fixing chunks of hair on the hair line,
side and on shoulders.

I've seen all 3 dvds and the models used had hair pulled
back tight so there was no issues with fixing chunks of
unwanted hair along with no problems with peach fuzz.

Those 2 topics I would like to see covered which I struggle
with.

Unfortunately, I am already well into recording it so I can't change planes in any huge manner but feedback is always welcomed and it gives me inspiration for new ideas. smile

Some of the stuff will be included and some won't at least not this time.

Well, I'm trying to do the same thing only with a bit different approach. But ultimately I'm trying to provide information that is going to help people understand better why and not just the how. That way they can act more independently and make decisions for themselves.

There isn't a way I can show every possible problem out there, that is why teaching and learning principles is something I'm more focused on than what most tutorials do and that is teach techniques only. IF you know the principle behind the technique than you can modify it and adapt to any new situation. If you only know the technique itself and don't understand the underlaying principle than you are always limited in your ability to apply it and adapt. And you are always dependent on the person who show you a specific technique for a specific situation. A good teacher should teach both and a good student should want to learn both. smile

That is actually relatively specialized technique. I'm sure we covered it multiple times here on MM forums. There is a very simple and old thread that touches on this topic, not sure if you have seen it or if that is what you mean, though.

Hello Kruno,

what I would be interested on a DVd would be "color". To describe it a litte bit, the following info:

the pic is "basic retouched" (healing brush, clone tool, freq separation, d&b,liquify...)
what to do next?
I am allways impressed what can be done with the colors. Sometimes the pop, sometimes there is a certain mood in the pic, sometimes one color is dominat,... For me this would be a nice theme for a DVD.

I'm falling behind scheduled so I'm looking at about two months. One to finish recording everything and one to prepare for release. Testing, building website and all that.

Hello Kruno smile

I cant wait for the next release, I would like to learn about the colour adjustment such as selective colours, like how to add a punch to the photo by colour adjusting and what ways you use to determine a suitable colour smile sorry im bad at explaining, I hope you understand me.
