Lightroom Portrait Retouching
Everybody needs to do this yet we forget it can be done in Lightroom! I go over my methods for sharpening and enhancing the eyes as well as softening the skin. Negative clarity is the key to softening the skin while lightening the iris (colored part!) helps to enhance the eye. Something I did forget to mention is you can also lighten the sclera (whitish, opaque part of the eye). Do not overdue it!!! Yes you want to make your portraits look great but don’t go overboard and make the image look ‘shopped’. I prefer to have photographs looking real, not images that show off my Lightroom/Photoshop prowess.
