Fine art portrait

Recommended Posts

Hi Damien! I was wondering how the artist got that matte look on the skin and eyes in the photo. 


I have attached a recent photo of my daughter that I'd like to see if you can get close. Thank you so much!

Hi Sean, I don't know what you think "matte" is, but this is definitely NOT matte.  It uses the full tonal range (the blacks are black) and if anything, the skin is shiny, not matted.

All I see is a slightly over-warmed photo.  Is that what you're referring to as well?
