I have added a new section on portrait retouching for those interested in retouching. I use high frequency retouching which is a professional retouching technique. This technique lets me retouch but retain the detail in the subject. This helps get rid of the that fake air-brushed look. Retouching is always up to the individual. How much is up to the client. My retouching is done in layers so it is easy to turn something off, lower the amount or change. This page includes a YouTube video in which I walk you through the process. It should give you a better understanding of what can be done and how easy it is to make alterations. Retouching is free and included with every portrait.
This example is a little more extreme. I was after the fashion magazine look in this example. It was part of a YouTube retouching video I made.
