Your best face forward

Retouching is ultimately the art of making someone or something look better. For example, in this chapter we'll take this portrait shot, heal away some of the blemishes, brush away the stray hairs, paint away the shine, brighten the teeth and the eyes and smooth over the skin details to create this final effect. Here's the before image and here's the after. Quite a difference, but it's obviously the same person and that's the key.

You want the person to remain all together identifiable. The way they see themselves in the mirror. Not like you've turned them into a mannequin. If you show someone a retouched picture of them and they ask you, did you Photoshop me? Then you've gone too far. Take it easy. Keep the personality intact, meaning, don't remove smile lines and the good creases that come with age and wisdom. And above all, do good work.
