  • The art of the subtle retouch

    You know how it is. We've got our fantastic image editing program. We're learning new skills everyday and we get excited about doing a retouch. Using our newly discovered techniques we have the POWER to transform. Remove a 'few' wrinkles, smooth out the blotchy skin, trim those Groucho Marx eyebrows, make someone an Atkins diet success story. And as beginners, it is all so easy to overdo it and the transformation doesn't look natural.

    Well, I'm on that learning curve of making the transformation look subtle and natural.

    So what do you think? How am I doing?

          Aesthetics of Retouch
          by DiamondsDr47
          Hi, i think we should have blog or forum entry for it. Because it very important subject. People asking about specific looks, but it much more in it...Perhaps shooting style, retoucher style, processing(film) and all together..etc, etc. Knowing the tools and how to use them is one part of the story....

          Im starting with retouch. I know I make mistakes but I need general opinion about photo. I was attach 1 photo with after and before retouch. I know there is a problem with hairs (brown color on skin) but how that looks generally?
