Now I'm not saying you are wrong, but maybe you should look up PAGEANT RETOUCHING, Of crouse my are not what you would pay for, I'm still learning. but as far as taste, I guess thats up to the mom who want the pageant photo.

If you go to a low or high gliz pageant with a great photo that has just been retouched a little, you will not win the photo contest. and may even have point taken off.

I hope you take the time to look, so can see what I'm talking about.

As far as my taste, Amber has won 3 PAGEANT contest with her photo's. and thats from real Pageants.

I did a google search and the first image that came up was exactly what you are beeing asked to "make"...What a horrible spooky look! Why use real kids at all?

Lasa

These images remind me of "CHUCKY"...

Lasa, I am brand new here on the board but I too think they are creepy and remind me of Chucky. How funny is that? I thought I was the only one who thought so. I go for more natural glam for pageant photos. I have been working on mostly home photos of my dd7.

Re: Pageant Eyes

Ok here is what I do. I don't know why the plastic look is in for pageants but this is how I do my glam pageant pics and several clients have loved them.

Re: Pageant Eyes

Gretchen, your work is beautiful.

Unfortunatly, the pageant world requires those freaky lookin' over the top retouches. I actually want to learn more about this type of retouching as I am moving to rural Montana this week and this could be a good source of income out in the boonies- how many times can I really photograph the ranch families in my new community, LOL!

Thank you all for your ideas and advice- I have learned a lot from this thread.

Re: Pageant Eyes

Every retoucher, every "pageant" retoucher has their own style. The diversity of styles allows clients to choose which type of retouch they like best. Some like them really heavy and doll-like, others like them more natural or semi-glitz.

I'm posting one of my more typical styles. Like all retouches it begins with a good photograph. The really strange looking pageant retouches normally come from snapshots.
