looking for some advice
Such a pretty young lady, great set. Only one suggestion I'd make. The texture and tone of the skin on her left shoulder and muscle is about as close to perfect as you can get. I'd use that to color grade and duplicate texture to the face.
Very nice. I can't say for sure as I'm not on a good monitor ATM, but the shadows look a little deep in all three. The main exposure & highlights are bang on; I would try and play around with the shadows a bit and see if you can pull just a bit more out of them.
Sounds good, but how do you duplicate texture?
I really don't have much C&C to give,except to say that each of these three pictures is very nice in its own way. Each shot stands on its own. You have developed your own type of lighting style, and I think that each of the three photos looks well-lighted and balanced.
As in all things Ps, there are many ways to arrive at a final objective, and it depends on the image as to which works best. In the last image where you have some good representation of color highlights, midtones, and shadows, on the shoulder area, I like this method as a quick and easy method to match the skin tones. .
Adding texture is a constructed layer that can be done with either a custom brush on a layer, or by a just using a custom layer. Some people prefer the brush, but I prefer the later. In this method you use noise, blur and emboss to create a texture very similar to skin. How To Create Realistic Skin Texture Effect In Photoshop whenever you create a texture it's a wise idea to save it as a pattern so in the future you can call it back up to reuse.
