Today I could experiment a bit with my PS approach for the male models.
Thanks to Ralph because he needed new shots

These are great Frank. The only thing for me is when the catchlight completely obscures the subject's pupil. (A little catchlight on the pupil or iris is fine.)You've either got a huge octoganal softbox there or it's very close to your model. What is your PS approach? It works very well.

PS approach is mainly a filter which works with contrast masks and high sharpening without halo's

Hi Frank ,

My nit would be the catch lights as well, otherwise great, I like. Might be a slight hot spot on the nose but not bothering

frankly Frank, I liked your other series with Ralph, but to my female eyes he looks haggard in this one. Most noticeably in #2, his skin on forehead and chin looks almost like severe acne scarring.

I use a different postprocessing method in this series.
More a drawing/hypersharpening approach.

very nice, its kind of strange looking at the roughness of a guys skin as opposed to the usual soft smooth female shots:-)
