No Skin Smoothing


It is a little unfair on Charmaine to have such a tight crop without any retouching but it is what I would want to see as a photographer. I often wonder what the skin of a model is going to be like and I am not a fan of skin smoothing. I wonder how many other photographers feel the same way?

This was taken outside on a bright day. I tucked the model under a bush and used a 28 inch diffused beauty dish 15 feet in front and slightly off to the side of the model and with the sun behind the model.

Image processed with CS4 raw image editor contrast, colour balance, vibrancy and clarity but only minor tweaks, then opened in Photoshop and sharpened using unsharp mask and cropped and sized. 5 minutes
