Portrait Retouching

WrightM_Portait_1WrightM_Portrait_2WrightM_Portrait_3

 

This week we worked on portrait retouching. We learned how to fix bumps and blemishes, create a flattering and even skin tone, brighten eyes and whiten teeth. We had to photograph three different classmates in three different lighting scenarios and retouch the photos. Although I will not need to retouch people very often as a commercial photographer, it is still a nice skill to have. I did not want to retouch the photos too much because I wanted my classmates to still look like themselves. We all have imperfections and that is okay. Nobody is perfect without extreme retouching of course. We all should strive to be comfortable in our own skin, myself included.
