Gemini Retouching Examples
A short video showing "before" and "after" comparisons of several portraits, retouched in Photoshop using the "frequency separation" technique. This process separates tone and texture into two separate layers, so you can remove blemishes and soften wrinkles while retaining natural skin texture, as well as subtly smoothing shadows across the face, which refines the whole look. Color and lighting adjustments are also made to enhance the mood make the subject pop. It can be a time-intensive undertaking, but it's an integral part of the process in turning the raw photo into an artistic keepsake.
