Hi everyone! I am having a very hard time getting rid of a 'light' spot on a girl's head! It wasnt a grey spot in person but shows up in the image. I have tried the adjustment brush in Lightroom, but looks too black and pronounced when covered up. I also tried fixing it in portrait Professional to no avail...any suggestions? thanks:oops:

Photoshop--use the brush. Grab the color of her hair holding the alt button. Then change the brush filter setting to "color." Paint over the light areas.

I think your angle makes her look like she is much bigger than the guy. Getting up higher and shooting down would helped.

I saw that right away too. Looks like the OP was trying to clean up fly aways but did it too quickly and left noticeable brush strokes.
