  1. Damien, Do you have a tutorial out or class or something that teaches this process? I duplicated the .psd file you did for me, but would love to know how to get to the numbers on my own for next time. I would pay to take a class on this. Thanks again!
  2. This is amazing, Damien! Thank you so much! How can I duplicate this?
  3. Here ya go. May I suggest that you add something to the guidelines about sending a crop of the area AFTER you've done your raw editing? I understand what you're saying about the noise removal possibly changing the make up of the area in question, but the above posts make me look like I have no idea what I'm doing. I simply stopped when I noticed the severity of the glare, and I even posted that it was not complete. With all due respect, Damien, I am quite grateful for your work and the help you've given me in the past, but quite honestly, I don't ask often because I'm afraid to. There are some people in the world who simply don't need to be spoken to like they're stupid. "it's a simple fact of nature and computers and life and the universe and everything." Really, Christina??
  4. I'm sorry, but is there a rule that says I need to only post a polished image before asking for help? If so, my apologies, but the crop is practically SOOC. I think all I did at that point was warm it up and lower the exposure a tad. I haven't worked on it since. I just want to know the best way to approach the glare in the glasses. Not how to remove noise. I brought it into ps to do the crop and I stated the image was not a completed edit. Why should I spend the time editing an image to completion if the glare is not even fixable?
  5. So, removing noise would remove the glasses glare?
  6. Here is a screen shot of the whole image, which is only partially edited.
  7. I'm stumped. I've never had glare like this. Any help would be appreciated. This is my oldest son. His whole face smiles, including his eyes. They're actually open, but it's hard to tell. :-)
  8. I think the skin tones look good. The numbers make me think there might be too much red.
  9. Sorry. I originally didn't post the image because I wasn't really needing help with the image. Just needed reassurance that the cyan number isn't as important as I once thought it was. Yes, the article you posted is the one I read. Thanks! Here is the image.
  10. Hi Damien! I just read over your information concerning cmyk numbers for skin and wanted to make sure I was understanding that I should not be overly concerned about the cyan number being 1/3 of Yellow, but to make sure that yellow is 3-5% higher than magenta. For example, I have an image that I just checked and the numbers in the midtones are: c-7 m-39 y-44 k-0. The image looks good to me, but before I ignore the cyan being kind of "low" and run with this, I wanted to ask just to be sure. Thanks!
  11. How exciting, Damien! I'm so happy for you and all of your success. Out of all of the many many resources I've found through the years of being a photographer, I've found yours to be the most dependable. I don't think I've ever NOT found an answer from you. Thank you so much! I'm looking forward to this new forum and all it has to offer.
