Skin tones

Along with consistency within your workflow, I find skin tones are really tough to get right at times. I had Elise posing for me for 10 minutes with the aid of peanut M&M's as bribery tools. Hit CS6, swatted up on some frequency separation techniques and applied them. The tough part I found was trying to keep it subtle but at the same time losing that roughness, especially has Elise does tend to have quite dry skin. I suppose when I shoot a bride they'll have makeup on and will actually sit still for me for more than 2 seconds without sugaray bribes ! Well I hope so anyway ! Here's the results of today's efforts !
