Went to Lizzie’s workshop today on editing in Photoshop for magazine work. Workshop was really interesting as it was all about the editing process that is necessary to publish images in magazines at the moment. Lots of skin smoothing process and refining of the image necessary for todays consumer. Very in contrast with what I am planning to do for my specialist production, in which I will be using no photoshop at all.
The process we used involved using Frequency Separation (i.e. working with 2 layers) to achieve the results. One layer was for the colour of the image, the other was for the texture of the image. This is my final image of Emily, our model for the session, and my notes on how to do it.
