Frequency Separation sounds like a term used in complicated physics assignments, doesn’t it? It sounded like that when I first came across it, at least. In reality, it’s a term that’s cherished by professional Photoshop users. Frequency Separation is an editing technique that allows retouchers to perfect skin without getting rid of its natural texture. This handy technique will make your portraits look naturally flawless. Using this method, spots, blemishes, and scars can all be easily removed without creating unflattering results.
Frequency Separation is a lifesaver for artists who photograph people of all ages. Your clients may want you to remove spots from their face without making them look unnatural. Instead of closely zooming in and stressing about fake-looking skin, you can turn to Frequency Separation and let it do the work for you.
These steps will look complicated and intimidating at first, but don’t let this discourage you. Once you familiarize yourself with the instructions below and practice a couple of times, you won’t have to consult any tutorials in the future. Your clients will be impressed with your ability to retouch skin so naturally, and you’ll have a brand new skill that’ll make editing as fun as it deserves to be. Let’s begin!
Retouching will no longer be a boring task filled with unnatural skin and icky results thanks to Frequency Separation. Experimenting with new editing and photographing tricks will not only make your tasks less daunting, but significantly improve your life. The more you practice editing, the easier it’ll get. The easier it’ll get, the more fun your photography jobs will be. The more you enjoy your job, the happier you’ll be!
