I thought my flash was causing this, but this image was in natural light. When I shot Nicole about half of the shots had very strong hot spots on her face. Half of thost I used either my flash or a relector. Is there an easy way to clean this up?

I first created a layer above the image, sampled a color close to the hotspot. With a brush set to '0' hardness and opacity and flow set to 50% and painted over the hotspot. I then dialled the opacity of the layer down to about 80% and applied a small amount of noise with monochrome unticked (not selected). I did the same as above for the hand and her upper lip.

If this photo is destined for print then I suggest using the clone/healing brush tool instead of a sampled color so as to better match the texture of her skin. It's a bit of a longer process and you have to excercise more care but the end result is usually better. Just be carefull at the edges where the hotspot meets the unblown out areas of skin.

If anything I did is not clear, let me know and I'll help you out.

Hope this helps.

Yes I wanted to print this one and a few of the others like it. I figured I would have to do as you suggested. Or a similar process. I was hoping some one might know a faster easier trick. Thanks!
