I do prefer to photograph outside but I can do indoor studio portraits. This image was toned with the matte look and gradient map to give it that color graded effect. The lights used in this image were simple, just a hair light and beauty dish. It was taken with a shallow depth of field so it would quickly fall out of focus. Feel free to take a look at my other portraits on contact me for more information. Hey don’t forget about photos when it is snowing. It is a great time for portraits. If you are not available when it is snowing I can ad falling snow to any image.
Stop using those phone apps to retouch your selfies. I can use high-frequency retouching in Adobe Photoshop to retouch your portraits. High-frequency retouching separates the color layer from the detail layer in Photoshop. This allow me to to fix blemishes, skin color and shadows without removing detail. This will give you a more natural look than just blurring your face. I can contour you face, shape your eyes, nose, mouth, head and body. Need thicker eyelashes, no problem I can add them too. Retouching is totally free and painless for all portraits I take.
If you would like to see the process, I have a YouTube tutorial I made for this image. The description has time stamps so you can skip to any part of the video you would like to watch.
This is a more extreme version of retouching and face shaping. I added digital makeup to to this subject. You can see how I changed her face shape with makeup and shadows. I can do anything from mild to extreme retouching.
Feel free to contact John Whitehead Images to schedule a spring portrait. Retouching is totally free for all portraits I take.
