Windswept

By arhb      
I am working with a local hairdresser to create a few images for his website and salon.
This is one of the images I chose to work on.
Timed retouch with an emphasis on maintaining original skin structure.


I've just recently started to add some entries to my epz blog,
with links to some youtube video tutorials that might be interesting to anyone looking to start or improve beauty/portrait retouch technique.

Super glamour and detail in this shot, the hair is very detailed.
The lack of a nail polish colour seems at odd with the aspirational nature of the image?

Well spotted Stuart - I even missed them on my 'problem areas' layer...
funny how something quite significant like nails/colour can be overlooked when preoccupied with other matters Smile
I even remember thinking about doing them, then forgot in a moment.

It's a lovely shot, but... As a Beauty Makeup Professional I have to say that the whole image for me is spoilt by the ridiculously exaggerated upper lip. Not the photographer's fault, I know, but why whoever did the makeup chose to go so much over the natural lip line is beyond me Tongue. Sorry if I've offended, just my 'professional' opinion.

Not offended Alda, however this is a photography site so would prefer comments about photography, lighting and post work, even though your profession is related.

Super addition, i love how skilled Photoshop users can create better than original images. Perfect for advertising.
