I read a post directed at me a few days ago, and I knew of and respected the poster who wrote it. The poster has been on here for even longer than I have, and has seen my work over the years. Basically, the post said that I was not spending the amount of time I used to on photos, and seem to be rushing through them. Thus my work has suffered. I thought about that for a really long time, because I think there is a lot of truth in that. So with this in mind, I'm trying to get to where I was. But this is where I need help, because there have been so many years that have passed, and I'm not sure when I started going downhill. My clients need the best level of work I can bring them. Therefore, I would really love every bit of feedback you can give me. I swear, I will not bite anyone's head off. :meh: Some background on the bride and her requirements: Due to stress of planning a wedding, she has gained weight and is especially not fond of her neck, arms and belly area. She wanted these fixed. She is also a bit more mature in age, and wanted to full out fantasy look. There is some very heavy retouching in the following photos. I have only just begun to process these images, and am still in the early stages of doing so. But before I went any further, I wanted to check in with you all. I sometimes don't love it, but I get valuable advice here. You many not think I'm listening, but in truth, I am. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
