    This image below is an absolutely untouched (except to convert from Raw) quick portrait of a young woman who will be a model for me.

    This was taken on a stage set with a real mix of overhead theater light and TLL flash so the detail is not as good as I'd like and the color is off but it is adequate for a headshot for the show.

    She is very attractive with virtually flawless skin. What I am concerned about is her noticeable dimples and the cute but prominent cheeks. My strategy will be to try to minimize her smiling and shoot her more in 3/4 face but any suggestions from someone with experience would be very welcome.

    thanks for the edit.
    I should have been more clear.
    What I am loking for is a strategy to minimize her 'cheek' problems in future shoots.

    Traveller - sorry for this potential thread hijack, but I had a question, more for Cindy - How do you know to do the neck, cheek, eye alterations? I remember the fibonaci ratio that notionally is present in beautiful people, but is this what you thought on, was just experience or is there something that I missed.

    Thanks and Sorry to Traveller - end of hijack ;)
