ISO, Aperture, Shutter Speed: ISO 400, 3.5, 1/80
Software Used: Photoshop
Actions/Presets Used: Eye Doctor and Dentist Photoshop Actions, Fusion Photoshop Actions, Magic Skin Photoshop Actions.
Extra Details: I lightened and sharpened my image first in ACR. I then opened it in Photoshop and ran Vanilla Cream from Fusion. I kept action as is except for ‘Richen’ on one click color raising it to 50%. I lightened with curves a little more. I then smoothed skin out with ‘Powder Your Nose’ from Magic Skin, and lightened the eyes from Eye Doctor. I added ‘Surround’ from Fusion and lowered it to about 30% and masked off the girls.
