    So far i have only done one, but working on the rest as im typing this. If you follow the link to my flickr it will give you a complete description on what i did to get the effect. I personally do not think its too strong, however i was going after the Maxim, FHM, Playboy look. Feel free to blast away, i can take it. If you have any questions that are not answered in the Flickr blurp, feel free to ask as always. FULL size is available via flickr as well.

    Set will be here - http:[email protected]/sets/72157611584456208/

    good eye, i didnt even see that, i will correct it, it does look a little pink as if it were swollen... Hmmm.... And the thing atop her head was just plain dumb of me to forget. Thanks!

    This girl didnt need much at all. but i wish i knew how to edit knees, I dont like her knees, i did a little bit of adjustment, healing and cloing out sever creases, but nothing like reconstruction, i need to learn how to do that, anyone wanna take a stab at it?

    yea, after looking at the 3rd pic more, it seems like your after has too much contrast/clarity crank up or something. skin tones seem smoother on the before.

    but as far as the contrast im talking about, her face, tan lines, and her left leg(the right leg while viewing it from our standpoint) and the knees just seem to look worse with the higher contrast

    Your key light was too far to the side, hence the shadow.



    Nice job otherwise.

    I think you could do a lot more with these.

    Looks like you just put an airbrush filter on them with no corrections at all? :dunno:

    pretty much just took out some of teh imperfections and added some tone. but i didnt want to do all that much. I am not very good at doing the whole pixel level editting. Im still learning all that stuff. I would ruin it if i tried any more. Feel free to have at it though Devin, you are far better with Post than i am.

    For someone who claims to suck, or at least seems to have feared CC.........I think they look pretty good myself. That is coming from one who hasn't even attempted glamour photography. :)

    yeah most of the stuff i do stays in Adobe RGB, mainly because thats what clients and agencies want. I tell them the gamut range isnt that far off, but they still say ARGB. :(

    No AdobeRGB > sRGB.

    But for web you must convert to sRGB because most browsers can't color manage and show AdobeRGB correctly.
