EDIT: I just realized you were the photographer - sorry!

Obviously the eyes are the focal point of this image and they should be they are gorgeous. I especially like the thick lashes and how the dark hair and eyes plays against the fair skin.

I don't know how much photoshop work was done on this picture, so it's hard to judge skin clarity but if the model's skin is that clear naturally (and I can tell some work was done) then it's lovely.

The makeup on the right eye (camera right) is funky. This is probably a result of whatever retouching was done. It makes it look like a bruise. If that's how the makeup artist did it, I would consider fixing that. I would also soften the under eye bags a bit - not remove them, just soften them.

All in all a pretty shot of a beautiful girl.

I went to you site, by the way, gorgeous work. I'm very impressed!

Thanks for your detailed review

She has great eyes and eyelashes.

I wanted to know is it looks over processed.

Whatever you did around that right eye, where the makeup is, makes it look processed. Fix that and you're good (again try softening the bags a touch).

Also you lit her hot, which may have been what you were going for, but for a beauty shot i would try to avoid that - as you have in the shots on your site.

Here's the thing...

She wants to be an actriss so she's putting togater a portfolio and I'm retouching the pics a friend of mine took.

She doesn't have any pic with a smile and I think she should so I took a really bad pic of her (She doesn't look like her self in it) and I went crazy.

Now she think it looks over processed but I'm telling her is just because she knows the original picture and that noone else is going to notice it.

THIS is the original:

After seeing the original, I agree with her. Way overprocessed for my taste.

The problem in shooting head shots for actors is that the casting director wants to see what you look like. Unless the makeup and mood match a particular role, too much accessorizing and over the top makeup don't allow them to see the person.

The headband covers the hair line which a director would want to see. I also like it better without the hair cropped out. That does make a selection nightmare in PS, but it would look better.

As a headshot, except for whatever that is at the bottom, camera left (a chair?), the original is not so bad. A little softening here and sharpening there would do it especially if she's on a budget -- even better in B & W.

Your work on the photo, as a glamour shot, is great, just not the way an actor's head shot should look.

In that case I agree with the others and would go on to say that she should not be using this shot. She should have your friend reshoot her.

Or send her to me and I'll do it.


One of these days, someone is actually going to take me up on this and ship me a girl, I know it!

Natalia... Stick to image retouching!!!!!!!
The processing is great, but photoshop DOESNT DOES IT ALL!!!!!
The base of a good picture is light and composition....every time.
