Over Ed’s Shoulder Video Clip: Post-Processing “Figure in Tulle.”
There were a lot of things I liked about this image, but as usual, a few things I thought could use some improvement. This video clip shows you in under 3 minutes what took about 15 minutes to produce. Main goals here:
- Enhance the breast area and add the hand back to that area when done
- Clean up the way the tulle falls around the figure
- Remove the tattoo under the tulle, subject’s left side
One thing I did decide early on was to leave the stomach area the way it was. I know that sometimes there’s a tendency to flatten the stomach in this kind of retouch work, but I didn’t see a good reason to change it. I kind of like it the way it is. You’ll notice I first attempted to work with the hand in place, but opted to remove it, then bring it back in from the original image and work with it from there.
