Wink interesting maybe?

After a photo-shoot, the image of the woman that was chosen for the cover of an in-house mag had some "problem areas." The fingers were strangely placed and different in color from the face and chest (1st photo left). I asked the photographer if he could send me an image with better positioned hands to swap out (middle photo). I swapped the hands, matched the skin to the face and chest, and changed the nail color (image far right).
I do this type of composite work a lot. Thought it may be interesting to some to see the before and after. Just sorry I can't show the finished image in full.

Hi Nancy, that is interesting.
How long did it take you to do? and do you charge by the hour or by the job?

Hi CathyH,
The swap w/masking, less than 1/2 hour, off course there is always additional time in calling the photographer, finding the best match of the photos he/she sends, ect and of course matching skin color and giving a digital manicure added time. Freelance, I charge both by the project or by time, whatever works for both parties.
