About The Class

AFTER THIS CLASS YOU’LL BE ABLE TO:

  • Confidently use professional techniques to retouch skin.
  • Understand why and when to retouch skin.

ABOUT KRISTINA'S CLASS:

Skin, It’s one of the hardest things to retouch, but incredibly important to know how to do correctly, especially if you photograph people! The dreaded, plastic-like, over smoothed look, doesn’t work for any photographer and your clients definitely won’t be happy! Join professional retoucher, Kristina Sherk, as she devotes this class entirely to skin retouching done right. Not only will you learn the tried and tested​ professional techniques, but Kristina will also dive into "why" we retouch skin, which is just as important as the ‘how.” This class will teach you all the techniques you need to know, in order to take your portraits to the next level!

WHO THIS CLASS IS FOR:

  • All level photographers and retouchers

SOFTWARE USED:

Photoshop CC 2019

    Quick and to the point! I did learn a few things from the course. Thank you. My only issue is that the model's face was already for the most part blemish free and nearly perfect. It would be good to see these techniques done on " not so perfect" skin. Kristina even said that the model's skin was nearly perfect. So why not use an image where we can truly see the skin retouching process at work?

    I have taken NUMEROUS classes on Creative Live. I am a professional photographer and can't believe I haven't watched this class because it made my life so much easier :). I thought I knew the concepts of items discussed, but Kristina really breaks down the process into a workflow that is incredible! Thank you so much for this class! :)
