One of the areas we pride ourselves in is our natural looking images. Two of the things Amber has taught me is that less is more and get it right in camera. Always. We typically don’t have too many skin issues because of the way we light our babies. As you can see, the difference is subtle. So how did I achieve this? Frequency separation.
What is frequency separation? It is a technique that allows you to separate the texture from the tone and color of the skin in an image. In layman’s terms it makes the top layer super sharp and the under layer super smooth. When first running the action, you won’t see a difference because it just separates those layers. It is how you use the action that makes the change.
