Fashion Portrait Photo Retouch – Male Fashion


Welcome to today’s fashion portrait retouch tutorial! This is by far my favourite fashion retouching method. Today I will be retouching a male fashion portrait from a recent fashion shoot for the jewellery brand called Edge Only.

Starting with the patch tool in photoshop I go over the models skin to remove spots on the skin while keeping the skin texture. I then use a curves layer adjustment to work on highlights and shadows.

Next step is to create a Dodge and Burn adjustment layer to make the details stand out a bit more. With Dodge & Burn I go over areas of the models face to make highlights stand out a bit more.

Following that I make some colour adjustments to finish off the tutorial.

  1. Haha this is my twin brother in this shoot . He looked great here alright . This really was an amazing shoot with edge Only! unfortunately he’s put on a bit of weight so I don’t think he’s fit into that jacket anymore lol hahah great work Anita !! 😉

  2. I always duplicate the layer, it is much easier to fix mistakes when you have an untouched background image. You can easily mask things out or delete the entire layer and start with a new one. =]

  3. great tutorial as always. I have a question (again) about something different and I know you like suggestions about videos: could you do one about pricing? alot of photographers are struggling with this including me. now there is a guy near me who asks 35 euro for a completely retouched photo. and he is good at it. I take about one hour per foto so I need to be more expensive but I can't. any tips on how to coop with stuff like this? sorry to bother you.
