    This is one of my favorite shots I've ever taken. What do you think?

    Since we're already on the subject, here's a few more from the shoot. More, untouched. I hate the way my images look in a browser. Colors look all wonky to me. Yeah, thats what the pro's say, "wonky". 1. 2. 3. 4.

    Hmmm. I can see what you mean now that you put it that way- how would you do it? Feel free to edit the photo, i wouldn't really know how to tackle that.

    A rat and a cupcake

    You may have stumbled across some very special art there my friend. That rat looks like the signature rat of infamous street artist, Banksy. That would be a pretty awesome to a guy like me. Some people just think he's a criminal, but personally i think his work is beautiful. Check it out...

    I wasn't doing a full retouch, just trying to get the skin more realistic looking (one thing at a time). And as far as the cheekbones go, if she isn't smiling there really isn't a lot there. I mean, how do you say it politely... She isn't a terribly thin girl. I don't know her too well and we...

    Ok so I backed i went back into my "soft" layer and backed to opacity off. Looks a little more natural, eh? Also, there are some tonality differences in this one from the first one i posted, i had to go back to a point before i merged a few layers and i don't have time to go back in and redo...

    This is one of my favorite shots I've ever taken. What do you think?

    There's a few different ways i do it, but my quick and dirty way (and the way i did this particular time) i created a seperate layer, laid a really absurd surface blur, masked the layer, inverted the mask, and painted in with white at a low brush opacity. Then, like you mentioned, i play with...

    Yeah... actually, the right side of her face and her arm are the only thing that was really touched. So apparently the parts that are bad are what i did in post-dang. She had some big pores and a little acne. I wanted to do as little as possible to it. I'll try backing off the softness a bit...

    oh, I also make every single couple dance. Doesn't matter who they are or how much they protest or tell me they can't dance. I make 'em. Totally breaks the ice and gets them laughing and normally turns out to make a good photo or two.

    Top 3?

    I didn't suggest what to wear—more how to prepare for your shoot. I suggest things like: iron your clothes (sorry, but wrinkled clothes is not a style) and not to try a brand new hairstyle the day of, or new make up technique- These things only end up in a couple going- oh see, "i totally hate...
