Hi,

I really need everyone's advice. I have two photos of a person. In one her face looks 30-ish and the other 60-ish. The real deal is the 30-ish looking eyes. What can you do (e.g. lighting) to make someone look older in a photograph than they are (e.g. deeper/darker wrinkles). I don't think it is a Photoshop thing. I think it was done whilst taking the photo. Two 30-ish and Three 60-ish photos below.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Robin

The difference is the shadows cast by the wrinkles/folds under the eyes.

Even babies have some. In Photoshop, diminishing that type of shadow, if there are any, makes people look younger.

Have your key light as far to the side as possible to accentuate the wrinkles, you can fill in some from the front for exposure. But you want as much textural light as possible
