Hi Damien,

I used Gels for the first time over the weekend and it's only my second photoshoot ever in a studio so please go easy. Oh and did I mention it was the first time I had a crack at frequency separation. I know I have a long way to go! Hence why you are the man!

Anyway I tried editing these pics (one is more saturated but it looked too much) and the eyes weren't looking right. So i found the eyes popped more when I desaturated and adjusted colours. Only issue is I still think I prefer the saturated version better but I want to tone it down slightly and fix the eyes so they aren't pink. I have tried several things but I'm failing! I tried to fix her underarms a bit too as they were a huge distraction and probably still are. The end photo will be cropped to just under her bra.

Well that's a better reply than what i thought I was going to get!😨

I want to know how do I keep some of the saturation in the first photo but remove the pink from her eyes and make them pop more?

I still don't understand the question, sorry.  Surely just do whatever you did to the second photo, but mask it to the eyes only?

Alright I might give it another try tonight, thank you.

Now that we have a proper raw edit with all the channels intact, it's time to talk about how to edit it without causing clipping again.

Needless to say, this is very tricky.  Clipping happens very easily with these colours.

Sorry I thought you were referring to the first photo I posted before the proper raw editing was done. The new version you helped me with looks really good!

On the left is the raw edit we just completed in the Raw Class.  On the right is my new Photoshop edit.  I want to know if you like it.

Great.  Then let's hurry up and get you into the Levels Class so we can discuss the levels work on this.
