Do you ever have an issue with over saturated skin tones on some images in Capture One? @tobiasbjorkgren did a guest post on retouchist.net about his amazing tip on how to combat that using profiles!
.
I met him in Sweden when I spoke for the Phase One @standoutphotoforum. This is why I love traveling and being open minded to what others do, you may learn something new!

Share, talk, grow.

@bellakotak and I are coming to teach a workshop in El Paso, Texas on October 14th and 15th! (Link to register in bio). It will be her only workshop this year in the U.S. David Parish has brought in some amazing artists for years and the community is incredible. It's only $600 for two days, which is over 60% off our regular events! We wanted to make it affordable. With just two days in, we're already half way sold out. So if you'd like to come, please do! Or tag anyone you think would like to take this opportunity. Because this is our last workshop together in the US this year and we want to make sure you know about it.

I'm so honored to see my work on stage at the Portrait Masters conference shot by @suebryce. She revealed this wonderful project along with a new powerful series she's talking about in stage! This was broadcasted via FB live today with all the amazing subjects next standing proud next to their portraits. I'm seriously touched! Definitely a highlight of my year if not career.

So you guys really like big prints! Here's another one I retouched for @suebryce! To be fair, who doesn't love big prints? 44" wide to be exact!

Her original post:
I'm packing for #ThePortraitMasters I am crying a little in between crazy laughs. I'm thankful to my incredible business partners and my extraordinary team. I'm going to meet my idol Joyce Tenneson and share my work with 400 amazing Portrait Photographers in Palm Springs. This shot is my Lighting and Posing segment.

Here's a sneak peek of a series I got to work on with dear friend @suebryce! So excited to share, they are absolutely amazing! My favorite thing is retouching portraits so you can imagine how fun this was.

Honest Portraits: @mariaamanda_official
.
My next portrait is another one of Maria. As I mentioned before, this was the first time Maria agreed to shoot without makeup! I was honored to show her that she doesn’t need makeup to produce amazing images, which inspired the “Honest Portrait” series. It’s a series which allows me to capture subjects in a way that they’re not used to seeing themselves, but from the viewpoint of them showing me who they truly are.
.
I purposely showcased one that I felt represented her, incredibly powerful and strong, and I hope that comes across.
.
Maria is famously known for her soft and ethereal looks with fantasy photographers. I went the complete opposite direction.

We had a meeting and tour at the Profoto headquarters in Sweden. One of the coolest part is the kitchen fixtures! Their visual anesthetic of the office matches the equipment, from the minimalism and the style. Love it! I thought you'd like it as well.

I recently got to photograph @mariaamanda_official for my portrait series! I wanted to capture raw emotion and I can't wait to share more from this set. I love shooting for the sake of fun and had a great time. I shot this on the @phaseonephoto XF 100 MP. I hope you like it! Dress by @mv.s_couture!
