The #1 Rule With Retouching
When retouching headshots, the last thing you want to see is Hollywood special effects. Yet a lot of photographers do this by going too far and doing too much. The best retouching is retouching you don’t notice. This kind of retouching comes from skill and knowing the tools. Many other headshot photographers either don’t do any or use software to automatically do it for them. That’s a big mistake. The results are plastic and fake looking. That fake’ness’ translates on to you, the person. Needless to say, it’s not a good look.
