Another week brings another great class on CreativeLive. This time NYC portrait and fashion photographer Lindsay Adler will take you through all the essential things you need to know to light, photograph and retouch skin. This will include utilizing the ColorChecker Passport to achieve accurate skin tones and of course the importance on monitor calibration.
From the class description page:
“Capturing beautiful skin tones is essential to the success of any portrait, yet skin is notoriously difficult to photograph and retouch. Skin comes in all colors, tones, and textures — each requiring different treatment.
Learn how to handle your subject’s skin and add polish to all of your portraits. In this course, Lindsay Adler will take you through the essentials of understanding, lighting, photographing and retouching skin in all its variations.
Lay a strong foundation for a great shoot by learning easy make-up tips. Get an in-depth look at how light modifiers, reflectors, and direction of light impact the appearance of skin for both natural light and studio lighting. Learn advanced color calibration and color correction. Master setting up your camera to capture accurate color and when to modifying in post-production to get ideal skin representation.
Lindsay will teach you how to work with a variety of skin textures and tones – whether the skin is very pale, extremely dark, very oily, has extreme blemishes and much more. You’ll learn everything from how to photograph each type of skin to how to retouch these varieties in skin.”
Just like all the great classes on CreativeLive this one is going to be broadcast for free, so this valuable resource on one of the trickier parts of photography is not to be missed.
