Shine is great on silver and gold but not so much on your portrait subjects face. It is not too difficult to fix oily skin in Photoshop. Stay tuned and Joe Edelman will show you a super quick retouching tip to eliminate shiny skin or oily skin in both Photoshop and Lightroom.

It’s summer time… you shoot a wedding or an outdoor portrait and because of the heat your subject has shiny skin or your new to lighting and haven’t quite perfected things yet and you have a great shot – but your subjects skin is shiny – it's actually really easy to fix in post production.

A few quick reminders… FIX it in post is NEVER the best solution – so as you are practising and learning your craft – ALWAYS strive to get it right in camera.

Portrait Retouching Tip: Fix Shiny Skin in Photoshop & Lightroom

Also – if you are doing portraits or headshots or modeling shots and you really want to up your game – lighting is just a piece of the puzzle – you need to find a great makeup artist to really get your images to a pro level.

Ok – to the retouching tip…

Here is a great portrait that was posted in Joe Edelman´s Facebook group by Stig-Arve Holmem from Norway. They have a very pretty young subject with lots of personality but no makeup artist and the image is just slightly over exposed, so they wind up with shiny skin in the forehead, nose and tops of the cheeks.

So do we scrap the image? Heck no – it’s a great shot and easily repaired.

Monsieur Nède´s dremel was fixed and he cleaned his workshop...there were some camera parts hanging around :



One of the most difficult things a photographer will ever have to do is to create an estimate for a potential job.


There is virtually no information out there on how to do this, and that is why it is a big part of our Keatley Survival Guide workshop.

Creating a solid bid or estimate can often be the difference between thriving and going out of business. For more info, check out our site at keatleysurvivalguide.com.

Today on The Slanted Lens, they are going to show you how to create shafts of light both for still images and for film.

I love the look of light streaming into a room for video as well as photos. There are four principles that come into play when you're creating shafts of light in camera. You'll need light and atmosphere. My favorite thing to use for atmosphere is a fog or smoke machine from Rosco (http://www.rosco.com). Check it out and then share your images on our FB group! http://bit.ly/20pDWeu

Keep those cameras rollin' and keep on clickin'.
