This was in my RSS feed and is quite hilarious. Someone who is apparently a photographer, delivered some incredible results back to a family from their shoot.

True. Harsh shadows from shooting in mid-day sun stand no chance against a good cartooning job!

Oh wow, that's the worst I've ever seen. Amazing thing is the lighting is so horrible the images would be useless even without the disastrous editing!

How much does it cost to hire a retouching service? I have seen ones that outsource the service for quite cheap. If the photographer spent $50.00 to have someone else process these they would surely earn more profit than they will make after the client takes them to small claims court.

Does the TF actually know about the soda cans and PVC pipe from 30 years ago?

Wow. This has to be a joke, right? That's the end of her photography business if this is true.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

That was my initial reaction as well; that it had to be a joke. But I'm not so sure it is. The photographer stated on her Facebook page, the shadows were giving them all beards and she had to fix it. She also has numerous misspellings all over. Hard to imagine her being a professional at this. Could still be a hilarious marketing ploy, I don't know. But man is this awesome.

She said the shadows were really bad on the beautiful, clear, sunny day and that her professor never taught her to retouch photos.

It seems that the professor didn't taught her much or she did not caught much? Portraits in the sun, midday? Sun in the face?

That is some seriously off-the-planet razor she shaved them with.
