Although nature and landscape is more my style, I would love to be able to play around with some studio stuff.

I love the color and light of the first one!

I really like the first portrait. Man is that woman made up whacky! Your lighting set up is amazing. Seems very complicated to me. But you sure make good use of it.

a short description on the PP..

all images are RAW..

exposure adjustment in Lightroom if needed..
--> edit in CS3, (psd, srgb, 16bit)

CS3:
dublicate background image..
clean up the image with heal and clone. Depends on the problem area.

then, use the select color.
select all of the color range for the skin, when done, use feather and about 3px
copy the selection to a new layer (or just dublicate ctrl + j)
hide all other layers.

use the ereaser brush to take away unvanted textures.. hair, eyes, lips etc.. you only want the skin. when done, dublicate this layer, and hide the new layer.

unhide the working layer.. and activate the layer you made a skin texture of. then use surface blure, adjust after likeing.. not to much so you don't loose details.

unhide the seccond skin layer, and activate this, use highpass filter, use about 4-6 px.. depends on what suits the image. Select layer blendingmode to softlight, it should ad more texture..

then just merge the working layers..

---> duplicate the work layer..
---> use portraiture on the new layer..
---> dublicate the work layer so you have the layers aranged like this

layer --> portraiture
layer --> worklayer 2
layer --> worklayer 3
layer --> background

select worklayer 2.. run highpass filter, about 1px

for portraiture layer: ad layermask
mask out everyting that you don't wan to have smothed.. the erea you are masking out should become gray.. when done.. move the worklayer 2 to the top. change the blendingmode to vivid light..

merge down layer 1-3 and se the difference between the new layer and the working layer..

you should adjust the image with curves etc to get more impact.
