These are the advanced techniques. The tools to getting High End Beauty. And, as with anything in life where detail matters crucially, this section is time-intensive. I mean, you’re getting 4+ HOURS of retouching training. It’s unbelievable. Really, this course is huge. (Sorry for the download times.)
You’ll be getting our in-depth, intricate, professional workflow. No automatic short-cuts. No easy ways out. This is advanced retouching instruction for those who want to master retouching.
Not only will you learn all the tools, you’ll also learn how to complete unique tasks only professional retouchers usually worry about — retouching and pushing color grades, setting the background color, retouching the tiny hairs around mouth & lips, and fine-tuning skintones.
The average photographer shouldn’t be given this much information. Why? Well because it’s going to put all the professional retouchers out of work.

Photography & Light Setup
In our first section, we’re going to discuss all thoughts behind this project. We will also go through a complete light diagram and talk briefly about all light modifiers.
In this section, we will start out with the basic raw conversion. Taking our image from a raw to a smart object in Photoshop. We will then apply a help layer or reference layer for later corrections.
In our third section we will concentrate on facial expression & basic skin retouching. We will be using various techniques for this section.
Healing & Cloning (simple skin cleaning)
Dodge & Burn (Removing fine skin hairs)
Fixing Dodge & Burn (Saturation fix)
Skin pop & smoothness (Curves adjustment layers)
Correcting skin tones (Adjustment layers)
In our advanced retouching section, our aim is to create a very smooth, clean skin & body while leaving all the pores and textures in tact. For this process we will again be using a variety of different techniques.
