    How to create stunning digital portraits with out spending alot of time in "Photoshop"

    Well it's not that difficult, just the right software and you can enhance portraits that would take tons of time in Photoshop, in only a few minutes or less.
    Did I catch your attention yet?

    Want to learn how to enhance portraits in a fraction of the time?
    Not only take portraits of female models with out having to pay for a make-up artist and apply the make up in the software as it would be done in real life on the model.
    take a look at these images and let me know if your interested in this little secret. Some of you may know about it, probably most of you do not. as I said let me know if you want to find out how this is done so easy.

    To be frank, your 'secret' looks like a very heavy-handed application of something like "Portrait Pro" in auto....

    I'm sorry but that after shot is truly horrible. There is absolutely no texture left to her skin. I would hope that if you were doing a portrait of someone, you would start with a properly lit and composed photo and not end up with doing so much editing that it looks unnatural.

    it was properly lit and composed, the exposure was perfect, the face wasn't because there was no make-up..
    I don't believe that looks so bad at all, the software the first picture of the blonde was done digital touch-up, and then another day we did a portrait of her after real make-up was applied and the results was the same, so I don't get how that loks un natural..

    actually it's not so hard, we did real make up on the same girl to compare, and it looks very good..

    You can believe it all you want, but it will still look to the rest of us like heavy-handed editing that makes her look unnatural.

    Agree. You're the photographer, and they're you're images, so if you're happy, that's what counts. BUT... I would NEVER consider handing images like these to my clients.

    really your speaking for every one? you believe your every one shares your opinion? first off that last picture was not edited, it was done with a professional make-up artist no editing, so if it still looks like that to you maybe your opinion is just "Your opinion and nothing more..
    see I know what I see, and yes I posted that last image to see if you would stick with a neg statement..
    so where are you seeing heavy handed re-touching in that last picture if there is none?
