Many people think portrait retouching is limited to just removing a pimple here and there. You’d be surprised at how many people don’t think they need their photos retouched.
In reality, portrait retouching (when done right) is about making you look your best and enhancing your natural look. It’s more than just a touch-up here and there. It’s also not usually about making any wild or obvious changes in Photoshop or makin extreme body modifications. We like to keep things on the natural side and simply enhance your profile photo and make small modifications where needed. If you look at the business headshot above, you can see where made many small changes to the portrait which contribute to making a big improvement in the overall image. Everyone can benefit from some skin smoothing, removal of blemishes, teeth whitening, and much more.
In the end, you can choose how your images look, but if your going to take the time to have professional photos done, why not have them look their best! Many choose to have their teeth whitened at the dentist, have a professional make-up artist come in for their shoot, and their clothes professional tailored. In reality, we can accomplish the same objectives with some retouching work.
