Hi!
Look at how the supermodels realy look without any photo retouching:

So, they aren't perfect as you see.

I think that's a really sneaky way for you to advertise your retouching services here. And I personally don't like that.

Nice work, your photoshop represents what I consider to be very good retouching without the "plastic" I have seen so much of.

This is a very educational way of showing how much photoshop is really necessary although I go photoshop extreme at times.

And I personally think its funny how you "snuck" in the advertising but I think this post belongs in the Tech Forum.

Here are some additional samples of retouching ... without the blatant advertising.

Actually... very poor judgement on your part trying to advertise your work that way..

I dont think I like what you did to some of the images... and are they your images? did you have permission to change and then post the images from the copyright holder???

And even though I cant do better... I would NEVER shorten a model's nose. that makes it not true to what she looks like.. and then someone who sees her image, then books her will not see the same person when she arrives for a shoot.

That would be a valid point, if he were a documentary photographer of fashion models (or if he worked for one). I doubt he is.

Documentary and fashion photography are completely opposite. One values reality (from, at least, one person's viewpoint) and the other values perfection (perfect symmetry, smoothness, blemishless, etc). You can't judge one with the other's values in mind. Well, you can, but you'd be wasting your time.

personally, i don't know why anyone's taking exception to you plugging your retouching services when workshops are plugged so routinely, subtlely and not-so-subtlely, on this site--both in the workshop forum (where they belong) and just about everywhere else.

your retouching, btw, seems to help out the imprerfectons of the photographers more than the models. not that that's a bad thing.
