In this video I discuss and show some basic portrait editing methods in Lightroom. Try not to think of this video as an "all-inclusive" or "you must do it this way" tutorial, but rather as one way to do it quickly. This is not necessarily the method I use for every photo, in fact I generally take a different approach depending on each picture.
In this video there are a few basic skin editing techniques that I like to use in photoshop.
This video is not really a tutorial so much as a reminder of why we do what we do for people, and how important it can be sometimes. After posting in a Facebook group of nearly 300,000 members consisting of photoshop artists and photographers, no one was willing to help Ms. LaMarsh her leave behind a decent portrait for her children. She had only asked if someone could edit out her scars and "dead eye" from all of her medical treatments of some existing cell phone pictures. Well, that wasn't simply going to work for me. A trip to Canada was in order, funded 100% by some very giving people.
