This weekend is my 3rd Annual Boudoir Marathon in Hamilton and I’m getting things ready to go! I thought for this week’s Before & After, I’d show you a little bit of skin retouching. In this particular photo, my client already had wonderful skin! But when I changed around the colours a bit to bring out the highlights in her hair and give her a creamier skintone, I wanted to touch up her skin a wee bit to give the image a more polished look. When I do skin retouching, the key is to not go overboard. Too much; they start to lose texture in the skin and look like a plastic doll. Things like freckles, moles, etc. are kept, but blemishes are removed. My general rule is, if it’s going to be there in 6 months, keep it. If not, smooth it out. What do you think?
