It’s important to strike a balance between enhancing the image and manipulating it to the point where it looks unnatural.
I have to admit, I’ve been guilty of over-photoshopping on occasion.
🙌 However, I’m always grateful to the client who calls me out on it.
The photo was taken in early May via remote photography.
🥰 My lovely client and now friend, Deborah, said:
“Love the pix … but my face looks too perfect.
Too many wrinkles are gone.”
In Deborah’s case, I overdid it.
She is understanding, kind and confident and I thank her for her honesty.
☺️ A client should ALWAYS be happy with their portraits.
As a photographer, I strive to create beautiful and authentic images that capture the essence of my subject.
Sometimes that means taking a step back and reassessing my editing choices.
