Wow, if you’re a professional photographer would you present the image on the left to your client? Flat, featureless lighting, awful makeup and a terrible expression…how much of this is your fault? Think about it!  The retouched image is probably over-the-top for most applications, but is presented as an example of post-processing  correction and enhancement. Not all of the original problems have been addressed here, it was a 30- minute quick-fix sample for this blog. Getting it right in-camera and pre-planning with your clients helps obviate the need for rescue retouching.
