Today we’re going to do be adding some tone and contrast to the model’s skin.
Before we kick off I just want to mention something about what we covered yesterday and that is my thoughts about removing blemishes. As a rule I will only remove ‘non permanent’ blemishes such as spots unless of course the final images are for a magazine / salon where the ‘perfect person’ is asked for. Should a client specifically ask me to remove say, a mole then I would do so, but as i say…only if the client requested it.
Can you imagine the scenario if you’d removed a mole off a female clients face without her asking? … “Why have you done that?”… “Do you think it makes me look ugly?” … I’d suggest some seriously good people skills would be called upon to dig yourself out of that situation 🙂
Anyway, let’s get on to the video…

Tune in tomorrow for Day 3 when we’ll be playing the part of the Makeup Artist and adding some realistic smoothing to the skin.
ps> Remember to flatten your image and save as a Photoshop or a TIFF file!
