This is just a quick speed edit on how I do a fine art photo edit from start to finish. In this particular video I show tattoo removal, skin retouching, and overall color balancing. Personally, I enjoy a more natural skin retouch. I try to avoid body manipulation like thinning and anything that just isn’t realistic. I enjoy fighting “The Man” like that. Also you’ll notice purple or blue tint to my darks. It’s because you rarely find a true black when you are looking at classic paintings. I like to use the Noise Reduce just to soften the background just to give it one more painterly feel. I’m a big fan of the Imagenomic Portraiture Plugin and that was the plugin I used for base skin retouching.
