Bringing out the best in a Beauty shot like this calls for keeping the retouching work subtle. The trick is to strike the right balance between perfect and human.
And this demands paying careful attention to make sure the skin keeps that natural texture while bringing out the model’s natural beauty. The retouching must remain invisible while enhancing the image in just the right way to complete the photographer’s vision.
This shot was taken by Rick Rose, a young up and coming photographer I met last year. Below is the before image.
