Re: April 2008: Contest Discussion

no offense, but in the real world, a photo such as this would never be "chosen" for a fashion magazine cover....never, ever, ever

i mean, please, it's kind of insulting to suggest that such a photo would be...there is no "challenge" here...it just simply is not a fashion photo nor can it ever be!!!!!!!!!!!!

more of my 2 cents

I agree with U in this,

cover pict for the magazin of a wedding business, A5 retouching 18K HUF what is about 100$

what do U think (not about the picture exactly just about tinkering in this contest)?

You may have noticed that, even though this site is directed at PRO-Retouching there are hardly any real fashion shots on this site.
We can only post images that do not have any usage problems.
We need permission from the photographer and permission from the model - in writing.

Which is pretty much why the pro's amongst us are never able to show their work - copyright problems.

If someone wishes to help by supplying a good base fashion image with due written permissions we would be only too glad to run a contest with it.
There's a thread set up exactly for this - here.

In the meantime - what Craig said.

Re: April 2008: Contest Discussion

pixeltek can i ask a question? (i just did)

where and who said it was a fashion/glamor/artsy image?

the following is the only mention of it
Quote:
8. Tasks:

*Turn the image into a cover appropriate for a fashion / glamour / art magazine.
and that is only mentioned as a task
which means you as the contestant have to try to make that a fashion/glamor/artsy image for a mag cover.
(this is a retouch forum after all)

i believe any half decent image can be retouched for a fashion/glamor/artsy mag cover.
its just down to how good of a retoucher you are.(im not 1 of them )

so in conclusion Get Over It

Re: April 2008: Contest Discussion

dataflow, chill...

when i think fashion, i think "vogue" not "field and stream" -- that's all i mean.

sure, you can "retouch" her to have flawless skin but she is not a fashion model nor does she belong on a fashion mag cover, imho...just 'cause she can be "retouched" doesn't mean you can magically transform her into a fashion mag cover...all the retouching in the world won't do that for this photo.

i think i'm up to 6 cents
