Post-processing technique: First, I make any exposure and contrast adjustments in RAW. Then, I start with a spot healing brush to remove any blemishes on the model's face. Next, I use the red channel with the unsharp mask, followed by a small amount of surface blur to smooth out the skin after sharpening. Then I use the sharpening tool over key facial features such as the eyes and lips. Next, dodge highlights on the catch lights in her eyes. Make a final levels adjustment before cropping and straightening.
