Re: Improving techniques

From the latest magazine:

Wax model girls in advertising
Firedog Agency
Quite often in advertising, the photo you see is not the one that came out the camera! There is a lot of retouching involved in order to make the image attractive to the reader. The photo retoucher is like a digital make-up artist, fixing natures imperfections to sell the perfect product. For this image we have a model that is meant to look like a wax figure. Therefore a lot of the retouching is based on smoothing out the skin and creating drama. We use a lot of gaussian blurs and painting with a stylus tablet in this exercise.

Sounds awesome.

Re: Improving techniques

DJSoulglo, some smilies would have helped out - but I understand that your..."Sounds awesome" is in a cynical tone.

The title says "Wax model girls...", the text says "..meant to look like a wax figure..".
If they had said "Retouching" or "Realism" then you would be entitled to throw a ton of bricks at them, but as it stands the only valid discussion would be as which type of blur to use: Guassian / surface etc.
