Retouching Portraits in a Hurry


Digital Imaging and Retouching are definitely my weakest points, add hurrying into the mix and it doesn’t turn out the best. We were given an assignment on Labor Day for our regular Monday class. We were supposed to photograph somebody and continue working on our retouching skills. Unfortunately, when I saw this assignment Monday morning, I had one hour to get the photo and to retouch before heading to work. My husband was my only option and he does not like getting pictures taken as seen by his non-smiling face. Our instructor did end up extending assignment later on until the next day but I had already submitted mine. Luckily, it is only a lab and our Head of Photography, Kevin Eames, always says know when to pick your battles and when to move on.
