    Excellent summary 👌

    A very nice summary. I have watched you employ this technique in many of your tutorials. I’ve not seen any tutorials elsewhere demonstrating the technique.

    I’m curious if you have tried Capture One’s tool for smoothing skin color and tone? The primary reason I purchased and continue to subscribe is for that capability.

    Great lesson Dan , thanks

  4. Chad Kotter

    Thank you! I’ve been taking extensive notes throughout your tutorials, and appreciate you focusing in on these techniques for clarity, and moving at a slower pace so we can understand what’s going on! Would love similar videos addressing your other processes using frequency separation, such as textures and tone corrections!
