Retouching for Fashion and Beauty


7 hours
You Must Bring A Laptop With Adobe Photoshop And Bridge Installed
Intermediate - Basic Photoshop Skills Required

Fashion and Beauty Retouching is an area that requires technical skill, but also has scope for adding your own creative flair. The course will teach you step by step the processes used within the fashion and beauty industry, from organizing and structuring a workflow to thinking about the overall look of the image and the final creative touches.

Beginning with initial considerations such as cleaning up the image, and restructuring areas. We will go through the processes of colour correcting skin, and altering the lighting on the skin. Many of these processes will be built on core techniques such as using global adjustment layers in combination with masking, and you will learn how to apply them differently for each task, making informed decisions about the effect it will produce, and what is required to fulfill a brief.

You will be able to get creative with applying makeup, and making enhancements such as brightening eyes and sculpting brows. Skin softening using a high pass filter is also one of the final considerations. The most fun is often to be had at the end, bringing the image together with final colour changes, changing a background and applying filters to the whole image.
