Photoshop Retouching:



For this photo I didn’t do a lot of retouching as I felt I didn’t need to. All I did was take away some of the redness and smoothed some of his face. I think by doing this to the photo he looks more awake and youthful.


  • Open up a RAW file
  • Turn into a smart object
  • Duplicate the layer
  • Second layer: Layer,Rasterize layer
  • Make a duplicate of smart layer
  • Open up the smart layer
  • Put down the clarity
  • Merg the two layers ‘clarity’ and ‘no clarity’ First and third layers
  • Use layer mask – Reveal all
  • Hardness of paint brush to be under 50% the brush size should differ
