Note: All photographs are courtesy of other photographers. These are samples of my retouch work ONLY.
My method is to maintain a natural effect and as much in-camera information as possible. While retaining skin texture I remove blemishes, harsh lines and dark circles and unveven skin tone/texture. Details include enhancing curve in lips, brightening eye colour, adding lashes, removing eye veins and creating a natural contour effect with proper hilighting to make sure the best features stand out. With lighting my aim is to enhance the lighting used in original shot but remove hot spots and any unnecessary harsh shadows. I generally colour correct each colour individually for a natural effect though a high fashion colour effect can also be achieved if requested. Changing eye colour and lip colour can also be achieved if needed.
