  • Portraiture Photoshop help

    You prob had this question asked many times before but I really want to know how people get their photos to look so perfect.
    Like this:

    or even something simple like this:

    Looks better than my photos.
    I have this photo but it just doesn't look good.

    This is the original photo I took


    And this is the best I can get it.

    Using this tutorial: http://www.photoshoptalent.com/photo...g-freckles.php

    But it still doesn't look that good. The colour and lighting isn't good.
    Any tips, tutorials, or ideas I can use to improve the photo.

    Make the shot as close to perfect in the camera as you can - don't depend on Photoshop to salvage a bad photo.

    Watch the shadows.

    Always use fill flash outdoors.

      Quite honestly, the delta-e of that shift between the two images displayed together is so tiny (on my calibrated monitor,) I wouldn't worry about it much. Short of wanting to understand it, maybe....
