Here is the complete Skin book tutorial, step-by-step – including skin smoothing, skin textures and my signature “Pixie Dust” skin highlight technique. This was recorded as part of a seminar I gave for the Tucson Photography Meetup Group in February 2011
Hang in there with this one – its a long one at just about 40 minutes – this is the tutorial as done in the 2nd edition of the “Skin” book.
I am teaching beauty retouching techniques like this at our next workshop in Los Angeles: Hollywood Lighting in the Hurrell Style — May 13th & 14th, 2017 – click for more info!
