A "Hey Leigh"...question: how do I retouch my portrait images so fast?
For the record there are many photo retouching tutorials out there created by folks I consider to be superstars in the business. This is more of a quick and dirty workflow for when you need to push an images(s) out like, yesterday.
The workflow is typically applied to my "press" photo assignments where I maybe have 10-15 minutes to get it done from start to finish. The video is actually sped up about 500% and a few extra steps added in that I wouldn't ordinarily include. The time will vary according to the image. I've gotten pictures so jacked up that they are barely salvageable with an hour or more of work.
All of the above can be done in Adobe Photoshop or equivalent software but if you can spring for the Lightroom CC application as well things will go a lot quicker, especially if your experience level with retouching is low to intermediate.
The only other thing I can stress is to keep a copy of the original source file...just in case.
