Yesterday’s blog was a study in contrast between the above image in its original state and a ‘slightly’ over-the-top retouched version. Here is a softer quick-fix iteration that you could present to a client; the lighting is still more dramatic, the hideous makeup improved and the lips altered considerably from the original—I’m not sure from that expression if  the subject was going to cry or grinch at the photographer! She appears much more serene now.

P.S.: properly converted, this image makes a killer black and white portrait.
