This is a friend daughter. I was giving him a photography lesson since he bought a new camera. And of course I took some myself. I think she has a lot of potential.

Great smile, lovely model.

Did you do any softening on her skin? It looks flawless.

I do a technique where I clean the blemishes, sharpen with unsharp mask at 95-1.0-2. Then I make a layer I apply gausian blur at 8.0 then reduce the opacity between 30-40%. I apply a mask and paint back the eyes, nostrils, lips and teeth and a little of the front hair. I like it because it looks soft but doesn't make her look plastic IMO. I like the effect. I have been doing it for families as well as single portraits.

Jimmy,

Do you (or anybody else) have any tips for whitening teeth in photos? I have tried and sometimes it looks like a person has the glow like the illustrations of the face of God coming from their mouth.

there's many ways to accomplish this and none of them are very difficult to achieve.

Here's one method:



It works better if you start with the full size image, but I just did a screen shot of your posted image and used this technique:

1. Use polygon selection tool to roughly select one of the teeth that was whiter and about the same shape as the tooth to correct.
2. Press Ctrl J to make a layer of the selection.
3. Move it on top of the tooth to correct.
4. Press Ctrl T to do a free transform. Move and resize the tooth to just cover the tooth in question.
5. Use opacity slider to taste.
6. Clean up using the smudge tool.

Used on the original size image you can get great control this way.

By the way, there is also a tutorial that someone posted in the Digital forum and this is the link

http://www.glamour1.com/forums/digit...eth#post229107

Its a more general method for cleaning up a whole mouth of teeth rather than just one tooth.

Cheers,
rfs

Nice image and the teeth whiening thing is about 10 seconds in Photoshop. Lasso the teeth (make your selection thru the lips... you can be sloppy here just don't get past the lips) then on the Layers Pallette, make a new Adjustment Layer for Hue/Saturation. Set EDIT on Yellow and Saturation on -100 and Lightness on about+50. Enter and you have whiter, brighter teeth! It only takes me about 10 seconds to do.

That's a great method also. I use several variations of it. There are about 10,000 ways to do everything in Photoshop. The method that I talked about is when you are just dealing with one tooth that has a problem. The more general methods such as the one you mention must be done to all the teeth to make it look real. I think whitening all the teeth is usually the better way to go, so the method you suggest would be the most practical.
Cheers,
rfs
