How can the early and late stages of portrait photography be perfectly connected
Hello everyone, I’m Lao Na, continue our weekly review today! This time, the theme is still the most popular and problematic portrait theme.
Author ID: Meow a brief introduction of Mi Ziqi’s work: campus classroom
Old Na Comments:
In fact, the work in the supermarket last week was also created by this classmate. There are some expressions in that group of works Not bad, but my job is mainly to pick faults haha~ so I picked one that is not very reliable.
This time this classmate shared the picture I think is good, the action state of the characters in the early shooting, and the lighting of the clothing scene are all very good, the color of the later period and the text layout in the lower left corner are also compared Comfortable and worthy of praise!
But the faults are still to be picked. For example, after I zoomed in on the face, there are some small blemishes that have not been removed, especially the light and shadow of the forehead are not done well. Two highlights are more obvious. These should be neutral. Ash is done.
Author ID: FNYX11262250 Introduction: Early Winter
If this one compares with the previous one, it is obviously worse. Why?
The author’s title is “Early Winter”, but no matter from the model’s clothing and expressions, or the overall environment, I don’t feel the atmosphere of winter, but a sense of summer.
only the shawl is still a little bright, which obviously shows that the idea of shooting in the early stage and the direction of color correction in the later stage are not well connected. If the performance is winter, should the colors be treated more elegantly?
Green plants can also properly increase or decrease the brightness? The actions of the characters can also be more emotional, instead of the current feeling of waiting for a wishful man by the Daming Lake~ On the contrary, if this picture is fresh and sweet.
can also use the optional colors to process the main color tone of the photo into a more fresh style. In summary, the emotion to be expressed is not well planned, so I created a work that is not very reliable on both sides.
Author ID: Brief introduction of Ke Xing’s work: 2019 summary
This work is a studio shot, and the problem lies in the later stage, the early thinking and the status of the model I think it’s all right, but it was too simple to do later.
The forehead is the skin on the top. If I’m not mistaken, it’s probably done by directly imitating the stamp. At least we have to use neutral gray for light and shadow. Skin blemishes can also be very Simple high and low frequencies can be done, but now my forehead is like the negative textbook I usually talk about in class, and it has completely become the feeling of an electric iron.
The light and shadow of the model’s legs have not been reworked, and it looks a bit messy. The direct sense of the light and shadow is that the muscle lines are very strange, but this student’s 2019 summary still has some films that are remarkable , Such as the one below.
The atmosphere of this work is good, and the mood of the model is also good The composition is more in place, and the composition is more comfortable to look at. After reading many of this classmate’s works, I would like to advise everyone, if you want to try studio shooting or some strong-textured films, it is best to keep up with the post-production techniques. , Otherwise there will be a problem that the front and late stages cannot be connected. A very good photo is taken, because the score cannot be increased after the later stage is processed, and the gain is not worth the loss!
Author ID: Xiaoqing Guoguo’s work introduction: After listening to the teacher’s course, I have benefited a lot. But how to whiten teeth, please ask the teacher.
The problem with this work is still more obvious. First of all, from the early stage, the model’s movements are in good condition and more natural, but This costume must be almost meaningless. This kind of down jacket or coat is not very good for shooting without a good theme, so I suggest that if it is too cold, it is best to shoot indoors.
There are more changes in costumes like this. Let’s go back to this film. The advantage of the early stage is that the idea of composition is okay, there is a sense of depth, and the prospects are richer; when it comes to later I want to ask this one Classmates, did you only learn the color correction course, because the color tone seems to have been processed, and I also did a Japanese fresh tone with a greenish highlight.
But the skin of the characters is terrible, and this film is really not afraid of the model being angry if you dare to release it~ The least thing to do is to do the skin grinding? The blemishes and eye bags on the forehead have not been removed. I often emphasize a logic. The “foundation” in the later stage of each of our portrait works is dermabrasion. If this “foundation” is not done well, it will be futile to do more later. Answer the questions of classmates and ask how to whiten teeth. I have explained this in detail in the “Business Portrait Intensive Advanced Class” course. Simply put, you can use hue saturation to select the color of the teeth, and then reduce the saturation to complete the whitening effect.

Old Na Comments
There is a saying, I think this work was very good in the early stage of shooting, I am very satisfied with the arrangement of the characters, and the weather is also really good, but the problem is also The same appeared in the later stage.
I personally think that a scene like is more suitable for some dark styles, for example, can we adjust the color of the plants to a dark cyan, and then make the overall atmosphere darker to give the picture Do a little Tyndall’s light effect on the area with light on the right? For example, the following.
Because I can only get small pictures uploaded by my classmates, So it can only take a quick PS in 5 minutes. I think this effect is more atmospheric with this scene. Some scenes are suitable for bright and bright, but the temple architecture, especially the scene that many people like to shoot in Seda, are all The PS should be more mysterious. This is the point I want to tell you today. We have to seamlessly connect the pre-shooting and post-processing to complete a good work, otherwise you will only do half of it.
