Amanda - Ring-Light

July 17, 2014

My latest portrait. IF I could pin point the most important step in retouching it would be Dodge & Burn. It's the hardest step to master but the most rewarding.
Million dollar tip: The trick is to slowly build up the highlights and shadows. I use opacity of 5%

As good as the retouching is, I think the pose makes this shot special.

Hair and eyes makes this shot. What kind of lighting are you using here? Looks like some type of ring lighting?
