Staying Creative  

When I’m not editing my own images or getting the camera out I like to spruce up my retouching skills and learn new techniques to get a desired look for the image. I have been steering away from the blurring techniques I used to use and recently came across a technique called split frequency. In my opinion it’s not really a substitute for techniques such as Dodge & Burn and healing. It does work wonders for tricky hairs however.

The following images were supplied by various people at the Forums over at Model Mayhem. One thing I can truly say is that a nice crisp clean and very well detailed image is really essential for beauty retouching. Keeping texture and detail in images that are slightly noisy, out of focus proves very difficult without looking like a blurring technique has been used.
