Natural Outdoor Portrait Retouching in Photoshop (Part 1)

The first in a two part series where I cover a start to finish, natural outdoor portrait retouch using Adobe Photoshop. This part will cover fixing hair, smoothing skin while retaining texture using frequency separation, and adding depth and sharpness with dodging and burning. Part 2 will focus on details like the eyes and hair, toning the image and adding bokeh and lens flare.
