3 Techniques for Retouching Skin
Portrait photographers strive to achieve beautiful skin in their images. Getting beautiful skin that is also realistic and preserves natural skin texture is a portrait photographer’s holy grail. Expertly applied makeup and good lighting are the foundation for beautiful skin, but retouching is the polish. In this tutorial, you’ll learn three great techniques for retouching skin in Adobe Photoshop, and will find out which situations benefit from each technique. Then you’ll learn two quick tips that you can apply with all three techniques to put a final polish on retouched skin. Because we’ll be comparing three techniques, the Photoshop instructions in this tutorial are brief. If you need help with using the Photoshop tools, have a look at our four-part series, The Secrets of Photoshop’s Retouching Tools. 1. Touch-Up Layer Technique In retouching, a simple process will often achieve what you need, and this holds true when retouching skin. Using a touch-up layer is a simple way to deal with blemishes, marks, and spots. It also works well to remove flakes of makeup, lint or dust, as well as tiny strands of hair or, indeed, any rogue hair popping out where it’s not wanted. I also use a touch-up layer to retouch […]

How To Sell Your Photos If You Shoot: Landscapes
So you like to shoot landscapes. When the weekend rolls around you like nothing more than to pack up your camera and head to somewhere pretty and photogenic, a place filled with trees and dappled sunlight or snow and rocks. You probably already have a hard drive filled with beautiful photos of beautiful places. It would just be great if you could sell them. You can sell them. It takes effort and planning. The sales won’t pile in overnight. But it is possible to turn a love of landscape photography into a revenue stream — and possibly even a career. First, though, you have to shoot the right images. Hikers might take their cameras with them when they walk but photographers plan their trips according to the time to see their subjects in their best light. To capture one image, Scott Leggo, an Australian professional landscape photographer, first visited the area around Mount Hotham, a mountain resort in Victoria. Having scouted the region for good locations in the summer, he returned in the winter to capture a shot of a tree buried by snowfall. On the first day, the weather wasn’t right. Nor on the second. It took several days […]

Fujifilm X100T Review
Ease of Use At first glance the new Fujifilm X100T is almost identical in appearance to its immediate predecessor, the X100S — most of the improvements to the X100T have been made «under the hood». As with the previous models, the X100T is another classically styled rangefinder-esque camera, with the same non-interchangeable 23mm fixed focal length lens, comparatively large body, and emphasis on a manual way of shooting. Once again the Fujifilm X100T is a very well-built camera, with absolutely no flex or movement in it chassis thanks to the die-cast magnesium alloy top and base plates and machined control dials. At the same time, it’s actually a little lighter than a first glance might suggest, weighing in at 440g with the battery and memory card fitted. Measuring (W) x 74.4mm (H) x 52.4mm (D), it’s ever so slightly slimmer than the X100S, though you’d never be able to spot the difference. The X100T is supplied with a push-on, lined lens cap to help protect its 23mm optic, although there’s no way to connect it to the camera. You can use filters with the X100T, but only by removing the ring at the front of the lens and buying the […]

Francesco Ridolfi: Fine Art Photo Series Titled ‘Room 322′
We want to share a guest post from Francesco Ridolfi, an Italian portrait photographer living between Italy and Belgium. Francesco just completed a new fine art photo series titled Room 322. Room 322 is a series of 12 images set in a bathroom of a hotel room, inside which various guests ‘take their turns’, each showing a little of their emotional history. Francisco also provided this when he described his latest work, “The airy luminosity of an ethereal space, aseptic and suspended, contrasts with the stolidity of these bodies – less than perfect in their awkward and authentic humanness. Statically present, the hotel room preserves its non-connection to sundry turn-taking occupants: its stillness heightens the tension they feel inside, which rips itself free of these contentless surroundings. Thus, from the bottom of a bathtub, contrasting perceptions emerge: appearance and reality, restlessness holding itself still, past within present; authenticity within fiction.” I’ve always been interested in portraiture as I really like to work with people, trying to express emotions and telling stories through a picture. Even if I am mainly a commercial and editorial photographer, I always try to keep time and resources for personal work. After my first fine art […]
