Watch This Free, In-Depth and Advanced Tutorial for Retouching Hair
In my experience, it’s been rare for me to watch a tutorial on YouTube and feel completely satisfied with the information being presented. In many instances, the information is either really basic, common knowledge or just a new way of saying something that’s already been said. The video linked above is a very welcome change from that.
In a recent video, Pratik Naik demonstrates some advanced techniques that you can use to retouch hair. The almost hour long video discusses a number of techniques that I think will come in handy for a lot of photographers.
Personally, I find retouching hair to be quite a pain and it’s mostly because I’m not that great at it. Fortunately, the information provided in this video has been an immense help to me. I feel far more confident now than I did before watching this video.
What’s even better is the fact that Naik has provided the files for to work along with the video. For many people including myself, learning by doing is far more effective. I think that during this lockdown while we try and find things to do, learning new skills and brushing up on old ones is probably a good use of time. If you’re looking to learn a few advanced techniques, from someone who works as a professional retoucher, I highly recommend you watch the video linked above.
