Beauty Retouching Part 4 - Finishing Touches: An FS PPT by Sean Armenta

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. 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 week we have the final episode of this 4-part mini-series on my approach to retouching beauty. We will be putting the finishing touches on this image to give it that polished off look. I will be using the Dodge and Burn technique I demonstrated in a previous PPT episode, as well as freehanding some lashes.

Be sure to drop by my Prep To Post workshop website at for even more information on photography, lighting, and retouching. We have a two-day Fashion Editorial workshop coming up on September 17th-18th in California, and we are also introducing a two-day DSLR Cinematography workshop on September 24th-25th. Next we will be in Hawaii in mid-October, and we have a huge event planned for the Philippines in late November.

I truly appreciate all the emails, and I am glad these tutorials have been helpful to you.

Great Tutorial!! Thanks Sean.

Thanks Sean.  These videos have helped my editing tremendously!  

I've never thought of dodging/burning like that... who am I kidding, I haven't done/known about half the things you've shown in these tutorials =) Thank You!
