Just wanted to share and see what you had to say. I did a diffuse glow on this already grainy image, and then tried out a free sample of Neat Image, sharpened up the eyes, and this is the difference. I couldn't believe the difference!! I tend to overdo the diffuse glow thing, but I just wanted to practice.

Kalypso...this is what I PMd you about...what I have been trying to figure out.

:lol:

Here is the before image:

Not really glamour but definitly a wonderful high-key portrait.
I love both versions, sometimes a little noise (or alot) is not a bad thing.
The second version is also wonderful due to the clean look and the white + glow it really complements each other.

Well done.

I knew he wasn't glamourous :lol:but I didn't know what to call it when you cleaned up an image so you couldn't see the pores and tiny details in a face. Thanks for the correction, Frank. :-)

Carambah! You are moving along at a steady clip. Nice work! That's a very real and remarkable change. (That's one thing I love about this forum, always a neat shot w/an explanation to help others learn too..) Best regards,

Hi,

I would like to know more about techniques for glamour photography. Can someone give me some tips on mostly how to process them. I take pics of my girlfriend and like to soften them a bit. How do others go about that?

Thanks

Rich

I posted this link in another thread somewhere. It's a good, simple idea that works for soft glamour images:

Oh yeah, WisconsinGirl gets one ATTA-GURL for trying a new technique!

Years ago black lace over a lens used to be one of Playboy's big secrets.

Now-a-days most people use Photoshop's Gaussian Blur and the History Brush tool...
