The latest from my studio sessions. This is my son, Adam and his lovely girlfriend Mandy.
Again, new to studio work and trying to optimise the images using Lightroom and Elements, in particular making the eyes 'punchier' without overdoing. I quite like some of the softening that goes on, but I find it can very easily slip into 'overworked' mode. I prefer the cleaner, more realistic look.
As always, comments / critique welcomed.

This is a lovely portrait Colin. The only comment I would make is that the skin tones are slightly on the cool side.

Thanks for the feedback Nick. Yep, I see what you mean. Easily remedied in Lightroom. Will post a variation.

EDIT: Have just checked my original shot in Elements and I'd already warmed up the skin - there must be some changes affected on uploading - RGB? I don't know. Any suggestions.

this is a very good studio shot, personaly i don't mind the cool skin tones, but i guess with photoshop you could easily make them warmer, even though i have no idea how to do it, wish i did Smile
the two young lovers look great and i love the fact they are not looking at the camera
well done

Very nice shot and pose.

There may be something in conversion to sRGB if the original colour space was Adobe RGB that affects it perhaps?

I read an interesting photo book called Skin recently, the author believes most digital cams tend to make Caucasian skin too red, - Ive played with some of his recommendations in shots recently.
