Hello,

I recently finished a portrait retouch that I would like to share. Constructive feed back, comments, questions are welcomed.

I use to only us Photoshop CS4 and Adobe camera raw to process/edit. With the the D800 I changed my workflow to incorporate CaptureNX2 because I love colors from it. basically I will use CaptureNX to adjust the skin tone, then save as tiff and export to CS4 where I do all my editing.

I perform my skin retouch the tedious way by not using plugins like Portraiture and not using any kind of blur(Gaussian, median, etc) to get the skin smooth looking.

I perform pixel level editing. With high resolution files from the D800 it's a blessing and a curse. Lots of details to work with which means the more detailed I have to be and that equals to a longer time it takes to finish.

I also posted a much higher resolution(4400 x 3016) on flickr to better see the details. http://flickr.com/gp/14285349@N07/dWSca6


D800 + 85mm 1.4D @ f/2
