Hi. So i was giving some advice to another member of this forum on his first beauty shoot. I am not the best photographer in the world (only 2nd best lol) haha JK. But I do this for a living, 300 days/ year for international and national clientele. This is a shot I took after a cosmetics campaign wrapped. The model (Jaydn with Pinkerton), the MUA, Desiree Foote (the shiznit best MUA ever) and I hung out and shot some beauty.
I want to point out a few things since at first glance this image is flawless, but still has many flaws.
a) wings are not even
b) her eyebrows are uneven (which is actually her eyebrows fault lol)
c) her nose is slightly off axis.
Besides that, please notice the following:
1) No blur tool was ever used in retouching this
2) no plugins were used in retouching this
3) dodge, burn, clone (on lighten mode + darken mode + normal mode) were the blemish removal tools
all her original pours still exist.
lastly, I didnt use a beauty dish... its over rated.
Feel free to c/c is you'd like.
I hope this helps your future beauty shoots.
