The way you should do Nude retouching

Glamour photo editing is a complex process of different operations. Being professional Nude retouchers for many years, we've come across many problems of it. Today, we're going to discuss some techniques and recommendations about erotic editing.

Say NO to "huge retouching"

The main purpose of a photo editing service is to make pictures look better, more pleasant for viewers' eyes. Sometimes, digital artists may go too far with using Photoshop brushes and other retouching tricks, so that it becomes impossible to look at the photo.

100 per cent of what you see in brand fashion and glamour magazines is retouching. Over the last years many celebrities contributed to an anti-Photoshop campaign wanting to show their fans how the real faces and bodies looked.

Famous American actress and model Emma Roberts took part in the Photoshop free campaign for the lingerie brand Aerie REAL messaging to all women and girls - `real is beautiful, real is cool!`

Trying to show that she is a normal woman, Keira Knightley was featured in Allure magazine where according to Allure Editor-in-Chief's words no glamour photo retouching was used. In one of her interview about this risk act she tells: "I've had my body manipulated so many different times for so many different reasons, whether it's paparazzi photographers or for film posters. That (shoot) was one of the ones where I said: 'OK, I'm fine doing the topless shot so long as you don't make them any bigger or retouch.' Because it does feel important to say it really doesn't matter what shape you are"

Say YES to natural retouching

It's obvious that almost all nude pictures don't need a great deal of post-processing. You choose which models you work with, so it means you will take pictures of women who are already very beautiful and are a good fit for this style of photo art you want to take. In other words, there are a few basic retouching tasks that can be done to make many images look better.

Excessive photoshopping and editing makes it virtually impossible for girls and women to feel pretty or good about the way they look, their body and face when they're comparing themselves to these models, actresses and singers who don't even really look like the same species as what we're comparing ourselves with! So we can't do glamour photo retouching for the unrealistic standard of beauty displayed in women's magazines and blogs! It is a mix of natural beauty, time on their efforts to look better, perfectly tailored and very expensive dresses, professional makeup and lighting, and anything leftover that might not look perfect can be made so with the help of our favorite Photoshop!

Despite everything we have to agree that Photoshop is everywhere and we can't do anything except provide naturalness to our photos. Starting erotic photo editing considers all elements which should be taken into account: color, shadows, light, body, figure, face, skin, hair, etc.

Body editing

The first thing that comes to our mind when we deal with nude photo retouching is enlarging breasts in Photoshop. This issue will never get old. The Liquefy tool is what can help you to make bigger boobs in Photoshop. Thus, it may turn out to be difficult to follow a tutorial on YouTube. Every video you've probably seen uses the Liquefy tool to enhance those jugs, but it only gives a slight bump up in size, so as not to distort the arms, shoulder and ribs, as other Photoshoppers tend to do when they get carried away taking As to DDs. What does this mean? More natural-looking fake breasts.

The second thing is how to reshape body and facial structure. A naked body is a key component of an erotic photo, but it can’t always look smooth and skinny. Here comes our BF to help our model to lose weight and get rid of chin fat. Our nude retouching service recommends using the following element to do with a big weight such as ' the 'Forward Warp Tool'. Don't forget to use the 'Pucker Tool' which may help to reduce any part of a body. Reduce the sides of bad looked part by 'Forward Warp Tool'. The 'Clone Stamp Tool' helps in the areas where 'Patch Tool' doesn't work well. Use the 'Liquefy' option to lean the areas of the body. Well done!

Skin retouching

Without a doubt, smooth skin is always a feature of fairness. It's difficult to save it for a long time, but it doesn't mean that you have to refuse boudoir photography. Nude retouching services are ready to help.

Before starting to create a smooth skin, it is necessary to get rid of minor defects, such as zits, reddening, wrinkles, etc. For this purpose use the following group of tools: Gaussian Blur, High Pass, and Soft Light. Skin airbrushing is the worlds most advanced retouching processes. You can mattify, airbrush, and heal skin using the techniques from the web. But not to over-retouch here is the hardest task. If you aren't fully sure in your skills, buy actions for skin editing or use skin retouching services. See our nude retouching "before-after" examples to realize what you need.

Color correction

A small amount of post-production has to be present at color correction. These plain retouching steps are one of the most significant features in professional digital art photography. You can't picture to yourself your photos without color retouching at all. Initially, the aim of lighting is to single out the best parts of a model's body and hide the undesirable parts like scars and scratches. It is natural that we have a great desire for perfection in nude pictures. Black and White shots are frequently used in Nude photography, that's why playing with colors, lightning and saturation provide you a chance to satisfy you client with variety of stylized pictures.

It should be mentioned that Nuderetouching's clients ask for absolutely different levels of high end photo editing. It depends on their preferences. And while editing we always consider these instructions and a photographer's style. It's an extreme job because body and skin retouching is hard to deal with. As a matter of fact, one wrong step, and your photo doesn't look natural. You can't name this type of boudoir photo retouching as an easy one. To make a retouch so that everybody fails to guess that Photoshop present or not is the most important and most challengeable task! Here are the top worldwide Nude photographers who know how to shoot in this genre.
