  • Retouching Portraits of Older People

    I was asked about retouching of older people portraits ie those that are more heavily wrinkled, chiseled like features and in general portraits of those of which time has not been overly kind to. I personally have never done anything in this range and would like to ask if anyone here has and if so what in general would be a starting point?

    Thanks in advance

    I would treat it like any other quality retouch. Do all the 20 things you would normally do to a younger person's retouch. Strive to enhance what is there. If the client wants you to make them look younger, then you could attentuate or remove wrinkles and tighten skin, etc.

      I would say the most important thing is to reduce the 'depth' of wrinkles insted of removing them. Try reducing the strength of the shadows the wrinkles create. Try to resist the temptation to always remove!
