Hey everyone! I recently read a couple of posts where the authors claimed that frequency separation was, like, so out right now you guys. Like omygod who even uses that anymore? But seriously, I didn't even know that techniques went out of style like fashion trends. It that a thing? It got me wondering, though. Every retoucher has his/her own technique for editing skin, since it's such a huge part of retouching portraits and fashion and glamour and boudoir and whatnot. I still don't have mine really worked out, but I really want to know what you use. Frequency separation for smooth skin? Blur and noise and blending options? Do you copy the photo layer and dodge / burn that one or do you create a 50% gray soft light layer? I know I'm mixing smooth skin techniques and light correction techniques, but I want to hear them all.
