film v digital for beginners

No.3190972 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Y'alls,

Not saying that digital doesn't have its place in photography--it's an essential tool in the modern art form as it exists today--but can't we acknowledge the place film holds, especially for beginners?

What better way to get someone into photography than to give them a $20 camera with a $5 roll of film that outputs photographs that will rival in quality those produced by $1,000+ DSLRs? The beauty of film for a beginner is you know you have a limited number of shots, you know you have to plan and think about and try hard to execute each shot.

I think that's what's missing in digital photography for beginners. It's too easy to just point and shoot so they do that real quick and then blame their poorly composed photos on the equipment they're using. By the time they can afford better equipment they've gotten a bit better at composition and they credit that to the better camera. This causes a money spending cycle where you associate the quality of your photos (always subjective) to the quality of your equipment (always objective). All the while they could have made much more progress at improving their overall photography by putting a couple hundred dollars worth of film through their $20 camera.

I just think it's a bit rich when people snicker at a film photographer because they have to "pay" for their shots. Yeah, they're being paid for, and that's what makes you care about them.

Mixer Brush to Retouch Skin

!DahGayseXY No.3190213 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
I just learned a new retouching technique and wanted to share it with the board and get feedback on the results. I was watching this youtube video of a high end skin retouch and he used the mixer brush on the low frequency channel to shape the shadows/highlights and do some smoothing.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OpnpSbNUCiY
(mixer brush starts at 6:06, and earlier he uses a solar curve to help visualize the skin. After a lot of experimenting I figured out his settings, which are included in my presets that I'll link in the next post)

So I did some experimenting and found it's very effective. Usually I'd use dodge and burn for the low frequency work, but this is ten times faster. Although the results aren't quite as realistic, as d&b preserves LF skin "grunge" and this smooths LF texture, if you use a high enough radius for the gaussian blue during the split, it looks great.

The attached gif shows what I did in 15 minutes, most of which was spent cloning the HF layer. This quality would have taken me an hour with d&b. Here's the link to a jpeg of this image for people who want to experiment with this method. I suggest using a gaussian blur radius of 9. I'm also uploading my mixer brush settings for tablet and mouse. I'd love to get some feedback on the quality of the results.
