Hello Fstoppers! My name is Sean Armenta, and this is my little spot on Fstoppers called The Post Production Tutorial. If you enjoy these videos, feel free to subscribe to my new Fstoppers PPT Youtube Channel for the latest updates. I also do photography and retouching workshops over at www.preptopost.com. Feel free to connect with me on the right side bar and I’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have about retouching.
This time around I share a very simple and easy way to achieve facial symmetry in a straight-on beauty shot by cutting and pasting within the image.
It's in our human nature to want to improve ourselves and seek perfection. you only need to peruse the front pages of women's magazines to see the ads for cosmetics, hair care, and skin care to see how these companies feed into this pursuit of the "ideal beauty." For the most part it is out imperfections that make us human, and also what makes us beautiful and unique individuals. There are times however, when for the sake of the client's request, or for your own work, we aim for the supernatural, and retouching helps us get there.
I hope you enjoy watching this episode. On June 25th, I will be offering a retouching workshop geared towards photographers. We will be discussing beauty and fashion post production techniques in an easy to follow, non-technical manner. If you would like more info and to register, please visit www.preptopost.com.
